Saltford Village Festival 2017

June 10, 2017 - June 18, 2017

Saltford Community Association has been working hard for the last year
to again organise a fantastic range of over 80 events for the 9 days
of the Festival, which runs from 10 to 18 June.

Emma Britton will open the festival at the Open Morning on 10 June at
Saltford Hall, which showcases over 30 local organisations affiliated
to the charity. Prizes will be awarded to the winners of the photo and
poetry competitions. Various items will be on sale including the 2018
Saltford Calendar and Christmas cards, plus a small book of the
poetry. There will also be a wonderful café offering Newton Farm
bacon rolls. Alongside the Open Morning, Saltford Super Saturday will
kick off on the sports ground and will feature opportunities to try
various sports and listen to bands during the afternoon and through
into the evening. Gardens around the village will be open in the
afternoon and for those looking for a different type of music, the
village choir are putting on their summer concert in the evening.

Then on Sunday the High Street is closed for the traditional Old
Village Day, which features a street market, dancers, musicians, punch
and judy, BBQ, afternoon teas, vintage car show, music at Tunnel house
and the Bird In Hand, heritage centre and brass mill open and much
more. Sunday evening sees a festival menu being served at the Bird.

The festival programme brings together, in a unique way, local talent
as well as talent from outside the village. Throughout the 9 days
there are a huge range of free taster sessions available, coffee
mornings, afternoon teas, community cinema, festival breakfast,
geology and history walks, upcycling/recycling session, brilliant
daily lunchtime talks and Eastover Farm garden to visit, plus a
scarecrow trail.

Other big events during the week are a Quiz Night on Monday, a Diva
and Desserts Night on Tuesday, a Night of Magic & Mystery on
Wednesday, a jazz evening on Thursday, a wonderful Music & Comedy
Night, featuring the return of Bob Webb on Friday.

The final weekend sees our first ever Festival Flea Market on Saturday
with our café followed by the Saltford School Fair and then finishing
off Saturday with a Murder Mystery night. All these evenings are
accompanied by wonderful food. The Festival finishes off on Sunday
with an amazing programme of events at Saltford Gold Club from 12 noon
featuring live music, beer and cider festival, trick golfer, model
aircraft, golf experience, bouncy castles and much more, all rounded
off with a wonderful BBQ as the sun sets on a great 9 days.
