Festival of Leisure

Come rain or shine the Festival of Leisure is always a weekend filled with fun, music, fabulous performances and laughter.  There was no exception in 2019 with the sun providing the icing on the cake!

Unfortunately, due to current government guidance at the time in relation to large gatherings, the Festival of Leisure was cancelled for 2020. 

Similarly for 2021, in our efforts to continue to prioritise resident and visitor safety, the Festival of Leisure has been cancelled.

Look out for other smaller, manageable events taking place over the summer in our parks and open spaces.

Arrangements for the Festival of Leisure 2022 will commence later in the year and once application forms are available, notifications will be sent out and the documentation will be made available to download from this web page.
