The dates for the 2015 Crosspool Festival are Friday 26 June to Sunday 5 July.
Here’s the latest from the Crosspool Festival Committee:
We hope to repeat many of the well-loved elements of festivals from previous years, plus a few new things! We will begin as usual with the blessing of the Magna Carta-themed well dressing on Friday evening, and Open Gardens on Saturday 27 June.
Plans for the street market on Sunday 28 June are well in hand. We are delighted to welcome the Sheffield Folk Chorale for a concert on Thursday 2 July.
Illustrated talks/book signing events have always proved popular and we have plans for a talk on a climbing/mountaineering theme as well as something on the Sheffield Blitz.
New for this year will be a family film show with crafts, and a photography competition for 11-18s. Rumours are afoot of a possible Abba evening , and other ideas are still being tossed around…and of course the Summer Fayre on the Coldwell Lane field will be the usual fixture on Saturday 4 July.
We’re grateful to the uniformed groups, local pubs and businesses and everyone else who have indicated their support – what makes the Crosspool Festival special is its genuinely local feel.
