With the Spring Festival just days away, Farnham Town Council is getting ready to take over Gostrey Meadow for the Bank Holiday weekend on Sunday 28 May.

The Spring Festival is set to be an afternoon of music, lively activities, community spirit, and includes food and drink stalls, family games and a mini funfair.

Sponsors of the Spring Festival, travel specialists Bushbaby Travel and local estate agents Trueman & Grundy, met the Mayor of Farnham to put the final touches to the programme, which the sponsors and organisers promise will appeal to both young and the not-so-young.

“Trueman & Grundy and Bushbaby Travel are both very generously sponsoring the Spring Festival this year. We simply could not put on such a fun-packed day without their support” says Councillor Jill Hargreaves, Lead Member for Tourism and Events. “The Spring Festival marks the beginning of our summer programme which is supported by Kidd Rapinet solicitors.”

The Festival opens with a performance from the Rock Choir at 2pm and continues into the evening, closing at 7pm.

Festival-goers will not be short of things to do as the timetable is packed with activities, ranging from a masterclass in Japanese drumming from Farnham Taiko club to the chance to pick up some ball skills from Aldershot Football Club. There will also be a street dance workshop run by The Dance Movement. If all that sounds too tiring, there will be a chance to get creative at the Farnham Maltings’ pop-up craft stall or just bring a picnic blanket and sit back to enjoy an afternoon of live music from local acts including Brass Monkeys, Mirrorsong and Grandpa’s spells. Other activities include stocks, colouring competitions, total wipe-out, giant sumo wrestling and much more!
