Last year we celebrated 30 years of the Festival (1985-2015). We had a great week of events that finished with Festival Day on the Recreation Ground. The weather for Festival Day was perfect and we had a record-breaking 8000 visitors! Thanks again to all the sponsors, exhibitors, volunteers and visitors who helped to make this a 30th anniversary celebration to remember!
2016 is shaping up to be another fantastic festival. New for the programme of events in the week is the comedy night, pensioners harvest lunch and an open evening with the community choir. Festival favourites will be returning including the quiz night, duck race, Ol’ Boys Club, history talk and much more!
Once again Festival week will finish with Festival Day on the Recreation Ground with a vast array of entertainments including owls, lego, giant bubbles, Gamers Bus, climbing wall, messy play, circus skills, stalls, music, food, dancing and bagpipes to name but a few!
Save the date – 10th-17th September – and we’ll look forward to seeing you all for Festival fun!
