Festival will be fun for family

Have your say

A MONTH of events, entertainment, culture and activities has kicked off across Bolsover.

The month-long Bolsover District Festival will have everything from music festivals to well dressings and photographic exhibitions to arts workshops before it finally finishes on Saturday, July 28, with a concert from the world renowned Tredegar Brass Band at South Normanton

The festival was launched at Beans Coffee Shop Gallery in Bolsover, which has a programme of courses and events happening throughout the year.

Bolsover District Council’s cabinet member for social inclusion Coun Ann Syrett said: “This is the first time we have staged a month-long festival and we are really looking forward to it - just like we hope everyone else is.”
