The nine-day Saltford Festival has become a village tradition and is now in its fifth incarnation. This year’s programme is as varied as ever, including music, dance, poetry, drama, comedy, exhibitions, talks, guided walks, competitions, and, of course, food and drink. Some new events are appearing for the first time and as always, the aim is to include as many local contributors as possible. The emphasis is for the community to discover and enjoy the facilities in the village in a fun and sociable atmosphere.
For this Festival we are excited to welcome a Clothes Evening, a Le Taste of France Evening, a sing-a-long community cinema, a Food Festival, the Heritage Centre being open, a Treasure Hunt, a Grand Raffle and a Caribbean Evening all for the first time. This is in addition to tried and tested events included, a Murder Mystery, a Quiz, Jazz evening, 5 walks, Lunchtime Talks, Open Gardens, dancing, photographic and short story competitions and lots of over-eating! Not forgetting the ever popular Scarecrows which this year will have a sporty theme. Also making a long awaited return is the very popular Taste of Saltford evening. Many local organisations/businesses and helpers are taking part to provide a most entertaining 9 days of around 80 events.
The Festival will conclude with the Old Village Day when we close the High Street and have a great party, enjoying a vibrant street market, entertainment and refreshments. This will be followed by a wonderful finale at the Bird in Hand.
Most events are free, but some are ticketed. These tickets are on sale from 1 May 2019 at Saltford Community PO/Library, Saltford Hall (weekday mornings) or online by clicking here. Don't delay as events will sell out.
