The Festival Committee welcomes you to the 2017 Cricklade Festival.
It’s that time of year again! The 2017 Cricklade Festival is on Sunday June 18th 2017.
To make sure everything goes with a swing, we’ve got something for everybody; with music, dance, laughter and more food & drink than you can shake a stick at!
As it’s our 10th anniversary, we have scoured the UK for the best acts to help us celebrate; including Mat Ricardo (an award winning variety performer), the Black Eagles (a Tanzanian acrobatic troupe), Lisa Lottie (the world’s greatest hula hoop artiste), Le Navet Bête (a right bunch of clowns!) and Mr Fish (a street entertainer extraordinaire). And back by popular demand, we have Bruce Airhead, The Ukey D’ukes, Fretless & Friends (aka Ray’s Jazz Band), Chloe Marie and it wouldn’t be a party without Tony M!
The field will be jam packed with entertainment for all the family with crafty activities from Junkfish, Moon Carrot’s puppet show, Zorb Balls, Go Karts, Medieval Longbows, Birds of Prey and traditional fairground attractions. Don’t forget we have our increasingly popular music marquee, giving you the chance to chill out in the Festival sunshine (fingers crossed)…
So… It’s time to play the music, it’s time to light the lights, it’s time to get the party started!
The Festival Fringe
The Cricklade Art Group is pleased to exhibit a selection of members’ artwork, and celebrate their 10th anniversary, on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th June in Cricklade Town Hall. Entry to the exhibition is free and everyone is welcome. The standard of the artwork is superb – well worth the effort in attending!
Friend’s of St Mary’s are providing teas, coffees and homemade cakes and an ‘oasis of calm’ in the grounds of St Mary’s Church. You can find this beautiful church just beyond the main stage – it’s well worth a visit if you haven’t been there before.
St Sampson’s Church will be open and serve teas and coffees from 11:30am – 1:30pm, and cream teas from 2 – 4pm. The church tower will also be open from 11:30am – 1:30pm so that people can enjoy the view from the roof of the church!
Cricklade Museum will be open from 11am until 4pm and will be serving teas and coffees. Come and meet the Cricklade Historical Society volunteers and see the fantastic newly transformed museum at 16 Calcutt Street.
