WITH Mayfest fast approaching, local businesses from around the central part of Gloucester Road are gearing up to provide a day full of music, art, food and fun.

Mayfest, held on May 2 at the top of Pigsty Hill from 10am-5pm, is a free event to celebrate the coming of summer, and ties in with the 'Our Neighbourhood' festival run by the Neighbourhood Partnership and council.

Youngsters will be catered for, with activities including needlefelting, face painting, biscuit decorating, a fancy dress photo booth and a puppet show with Mr Gotalot.

There will be community choir groups to keep crowds entertained, including Ashley Down Community choir, Bishop Road Community choir and the Bristol Folk Choir.

Those attending can enjoy plenty of locally produced goods, food and drink – plus back massages will be given outside Osna Therapy Centre.

Jack in the Green, a nine-feet tall figure, covered in greenery and flowers, accompanied by musicians and morris dancers, will be arriving and dancing around the area at 3.30pm.
