With the generous financial support from The Heptonstall Junior and Infant School and the Friends and Parents of Heptonstall we funds to spend on materials for the Children’s Parade on Festival Day.
We will be meeting at 10.30 am in Weavers Square and parading from 11 am headed up by the Heptonstall Pantomime Group and Drum Machine.
Jacky Kelly, from the Heptonstall Village Team will be knocking on doors along the route and seeing if some of our older generations would like a ring side seat as the parade passes through.
The Heptonstall Out of School Club have also lent their support to the event, by making a large Giant Peach to carry aloft on the day.
As a final touch, some of the kids will be carrying platters of peaches to offer to our special ‘roadside guests’ as the parade passes by.
The whole of the festival is aimed squarely at families, with plenty for all ages to see and do across the village including the Roald Dahl treasure hunt and not-to-be-missed Frolicked Puppet Theatre in Weaver Square at 1pm.
The programme which will run at the Bowling Club is an area to take the kids for a sit down and value ALL YOU CAN EAT Tapas, or sandwich platter lunch, or a quicker cake and sarnie. There will be lots of free activities where the youngest and oldest amongst us can join in, and everyone else too!
There’ll be plenty of food available across the village too – with a giant hog roast int the ruins, Vegan Food, snacks available from both pubs and delicious tea in the church – you should find something to your taste.
A fun day to be had for all across the whole village!
