Heptonstall Festival will be taking place all day on Saturday (21 September). For reasons of safety (especially child safety), the main village street will be closed between the school carpark and the post office between 9.30am and 6.30pm. The road will be blocked by marshalled straw bales.
If possible, it would be appreciated if no one drove down the street between these hours, but people with off-street parking will be able to have access except at the time of the children’s parade in the morning.
There should be no access between Townfield Lane/Church Street and Northgate, please.
Buses E. 906 and 517 will be diverted via Lee Wood Road and Draper Lane. Route 591 will not be affected.
The festival organisers apologise for the inconvenience involved, but we hope that all villagers and visitors alike will think the disruption is worth it.
