Berkeley Town Festival returns - longer, bigger & better!

Saturday 16th July 2011 – from 1.00pm

The Berkeley Festival returns for its second year on Saturday 16th July 2011. This year the festival is longer, bigger and better! Starting at 1.00pm, located in Canonbury Street and the Market Square, the Festival is a great afternoon out for all the family.

The Festival will be formally opened by Charles Berkeley, followed by a programme of live entertainment and music throughout the afternoon.

There will be stalls for crafts and fund-raising, a BBQ, Pimms, real ales, and ice cream! Berkeley History Society will be displaying finds from the University of Bristol archaeological dig in Berkeley and there will be jazz from The Park Row Five in Dr. Jenner’s Garden. Weather permitting there will also be tethered hot air balloon rides, subject to availability.

The fun doesn’t stop there though as there is evening entertainment at the Salutation Inn in Ham from 6.00pm with a hog roast and music and at the Berkeley Arms Hotel there will be a disco from 8.00pm in the function room.

The Festival is free to attend and open to everyone. There will be a fabulous raffle prizes include a balloon flight, boat trip, Marks & Spencer’s vouchers, tickets to the Berkeley Skirmish, Berkeley Show, Frampton Country Fair, Dr. Jenner’s House, Stroud Cinema, Berkeley Castle, Old down Country Park and much, much more. Any profits made are donated to local charities.
