Com­mu­nity urged to get in­volved in Bret­ton Fes­ti­val

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Neighbourhood News -

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.
