Big Weekend 2018 Attractions

Planning The Big Weekend 2018 has begun, find out how to get involved & what’s on!


After the wonderful feedback, sheer numbers of people and brilliant atmosphere at The Big Weekend 2016 we have decided to keep the framework very similar for 2018.

Each day will again be themed with Saturday 25th August being our Community day, where we invite all our local groups & clubs to have a stall and celebrate ( show off) what they do.

Sunday 26th August is for all local arts and crafts people, groups and businesses to demonstrate their skills and sell their wares.

Bank holiday Monday 27th August is our Sports Day when our local teams, dance troops and clubs come along showing off their skills, giving you ago and hopefully signing up some new members.

Please contact us at to express your interest and book your stall/slot.(remember there is no charge to local businesses/clubs and charities).


Also if you would like to volunteer to help us (even if it’s just for an hour or 2), we need over 30 volunteers so please don’t think someone else will do it because we need you all, again please email the above address.


So what is happening so far for TBW 2018 …… details are confirmed/acts are booked we will let you all know.
