Summer is here and we plan to make the most of it!
Keep your Thursday evenings free this summer holiday, you’re going to want to join in with our summer festival!
We’re putting on a range of events on Thursday evenings over the summer holidays for you to come along to and bring your friends. The events will range in style, location and cost, but all are open to anyone.
‘But, why do a summer festival?’ I hear you ask, well, good question…
We love spending time together and we want to give you chance to do that and more importantly to bring your mates, family, colleagues, neighbours and anyone else you like along to spend time with us all too!
‘OK, that sounds like fun, I like spending time with you too,’ you might reply, ‘what’s actually going on then?’ would be a natural follow up question.
Well, that’s a good question too and this is how we would answer…
