Festival Saturday: The show goes on, whatever the weather!

Crowd at the 2012 Bradley Stoke Community Festival.

The organisers of the Bradley Stoke Community Festival have stressed that Saturday’s events at the Jubilee Centre will proceed, whatever the weather.

Responding to enquiries from members of the public concerned at the forecast of intense thundery downpours on Saturday morning followed by showers in the early afternoon, town clerk Sharon Petela said:

“There are no plans to cancel Saturday’s event. Obviously, if the weather is bad, it will be up to each individual stall holder/sideshow etc. to decide whether they wish to attend, but the site will be open whatever the weather and all the infrastructure will be in place for the Festival to take place.”

The packed programme of music and dance events starts at 11.30am and runs through to 6pm.

Musical entertainment kicks off with the BSCS students at 11.30am – followed by Fflip Fflops, Uncle Buck, Goodnight Lois, She Says, Mizizi and The Band With No Name.

Dance and gymnastic groups performing in between the bands this year include Yasmins, South West Winterguard Academy, Bradley Stoke Gym Club, Acro Gymnasts, South Gloucestershire Chinese Association and Dance Works.

Groups performing in the demonstration area on Jubilee Green include Bradley Stoke Community Singers, Patchway Panthers, Infinity Dance Group, Bradley Stoke Youth Rugby and Predator Cheerleaders. There will also be demonstrations from professional skateboarders on a 5ft half-pipe and a falconry display.

Fun rides for the children include trampolines, giant slides, football games, longbow archery, giant inflatables, a helter skelter and the Vertical Xtreme climbing wall.

The Bradley Stoke Youth FC Football Tournament for Year 1 children starts at 12.30am on the top soccer pitches, with presentations planned for 3pm.
