Community urged to get involved in Bretton Festival
ORGANISERS of Bretton Community Festival have promised the event will be “even bigger” this year - but want more people to get involved.
The popular free festival will take part on July 17 from 1pm in the safely enclosed grounds of Peterborough Lions Rugby Club in Bretton Park.
This year the festival is able to use all of the rugby club’s grounds, which will mean they can fit in even more attractions.
A Western re-enactment group will be there complete with a Western town, a foot and horseback gunfight and lasso displays. They will also give lessons for budding cowboys or cowgirls to have a go.
There will also be a Dog Show, sponsored by NuVet of Bretton, with prizes for all kinds of pooches.
A vast array of live music will be giving the festival a lively backdrop and there will also be a craft fair and many other attractions in the arena.
The raffle has a top prize of £200 cash along with a whole host of other goodies.
And to keep the children entertained, there will be the mobile climbing wall as well as the equally scary fairground attractions.
The festival will also have a car boot sale running alongside it and anyone wanting a stall must contact Claire on 01733 265329 to book their place. The cost of a stall is £5. Organisers are also looking for any groups or organisations interested in hosting a free charity stall or a craft stall at a cost of £10 on the day to come forward. For details call Helen on 01733 268108 or Bretton Parish Council on 01733 263019.
