Festival of Leisure

Come rain or shine the Festival of Leisure is always a weekend filled with fun, music, fabulous performances and laughter and this year was no exception with the sun providing the icing on the cake!

Busy entertainment programmes featured Capable Canines dog agility, kick-boxing demos, local dance schools, the athletic Pedal Vs Parkour team, Derwent Harp Ensemble and The National Festival Circus to name but a few.  And colourful carnival performances from emccan, miniature train rides, giant tortoises and a huge tree-man ensured there was something for everyone to enjoy!

Although the dust has only just settled we have started planning for next year’s festival, so put the dates in your diary – 27th and 28th June 2020 - and don’t forget to join us.
