We are really excited to share our plans for a free street ceilidh as part of this year’s town centre celebrations. The ceilidh will take place in The Square on Saturday August 29 following the annual parade of morris sides and dance teams that goes from the Castle, through Pride Hill and the High Street.

It will be suitable for all ages and abilities and forms part of the fringe events we organise that include pub music sessions and dance displays.

The town centre parade has become an integral part of the festival that attracts hundreds of onlookers so we thought we would offer them the chance to experience a taste of the festival!
