The 2016 festival runs Friday 24 June-3 July, with the Summer Fayre scheduled for Saturday 2 July.
This year’s festival theme is Carnival, a summer party with great activities happening on the streets to coincide with this year’s Olympics in Brazil, the queen’s 90th celebrations and more besides.
The organisers are hoping it’ll be a colourful and exciting week for the community to get out and about, meet the neighbours, make new friends and try new activities.
