ROLL up, roll up for the 38th Broomhill Festival - the biggest and best yet.
The festival has come a long way since it was started in 1975.
Back then a group of architecture students who had carried out a project on Broomhill, as part of their course arranged the festival which ran from May 23 to 29.
Today Broomhill boasts an event-packed festival which goes on for 15 full days and offers a diverse selection of attractions.
Many of the original events have remained until today.
They include the ever popular garden party, art exhibitions and wide range of music events.
Sadly some of the events from the 1970s which haven’t managed to survive the test of time are the croquet tournament, the dog show and the most beautiful person competition - despite there being so many beautiful people to choose from in our fair city.
This year the festival is supporting three local charities - Transport 17, The Broomhall Breakfast Club and Amy’s Retreat.
For tickets log onto www.broomhillfestival.org.uk or call into Williamson Hardware or Oxfam in Fulwood Road, or you can buy them at St Mark’s Church, in Broomfield Road between 9am and 1pm Monday to Friday.
