Fun all the way at Westbury Park Festival

May 29 2018

Events and activities galore are planned for the 2018 Westbury Park Festival which begins with a family friendly service at St Alban’s Church on Sunday 10 June and runs until the end of the month, finishing on Saturday 30 June.

This year’s event is run by Paul Thomas and brought to local people by the Community Association and the Church in Westbury Park. Paul said: “ We hope you will enjoy this special time for the community and support the events we have laid on. Any financial surplus will be donated to local charities. Enjoy and hope to see you!”

Highlights include Peter Lord’s amusing tales of the Story of Aardman, a prom-style concert, film night with filmmaker Gordon Young, and the Festival Garden Party in the grounds of St Alban’s Church on Saturday 16 June. 

Westbury Park gardeners are busy sprucing up their plots ready for the ever-popular annual Open Gardens which takes place on the afternoon of Sunday 24 June.

The Westbury Park Art Fair will be held at the Methodist church hall, North View, Westbury Park, as part of the Westbury Park Festival on Saturday 30 June. Organiser Jane Barker said: “This successful event is now in its 6th year. Eighteen artists will be showing and selling their Art and Crafts. There will also be live music from the Gaswork Singers and Ian Lord, a very talented guitarist, amongst other artists.

“Refreshments, including home-made cakes, will be served and the money raised, will be given to a local charity and to the Musicians without Borders charity. So please come along and share in this enjoyable event.” 

Tickets to events are available from Barry Toogood Flowers on Coldharbour Road, Caffe Arabica on North View, and for the Story of Aardman from Henleaze Library.
