Our third annual festival of folk dance, music and song is bigger and better than ever. At least 30 international, Morris and local dance groups performing at eight town centre locations - about 300 dancers and 60 musicians.
A fantastic day for the whole family including a Kids’ Zone in Westbury Gardens with a fun fair, storyteller, Punch & Judy, join in dances, face painter and lots of children’s activities. Don’t miss our 10’ tall giant Jack In The Green’s grand arrival in Lamb Yard at 11am. He’ll be touring the town “greening” visitors to herald in the summer. There are Mummers’ plays, a free concert in St Margaret’s Hall, a pagan arts and crafts fair, over 30 stalls in our local artisan market, a town window dressing competition, A Jack In The Green town trail and a Community Zone. Great food and drink in the town’s pubs and cafes, several with live music.
Make a day of it, we even have covered venues in the event of rain.
Wear something green.
