Stratton Festival 2017 - Swindon

Stratton Festival 2017 – Back for another year!

Stratton St Margaret Parish Council is holding their popular Stratton Festival on Saturday 22 July 2017 taking place on the back field behind Grange Leisure, Grange Drive, Stratton St Margaret, Swindon, SN3 4JY.

The festival, now in its fifth year, will be free for all to attend. The festival will kick off at 12.00pm on Saturday and end at 10.30pm. Throughout the day there will be various attractions including a dog show by Drove Vets, live music, dance performances, craft stalls, beer and cider tent, Zumba sessions, circus performers, balloon modelling, face painting, football tournaments and much more.

Stratton Festival’s main objective is to bring the community together and to celebrate all that’s great about living in Stratton! This popular event brings over 5,000 people together every year helping to raise money and awareness for local community groups and charities.

The Stratton Festival has various different acts and entertainers showing up to help entertain the Stratton and Swindon Community.  Our children activities coming in all shapes and sizes including, Twistina and Twistopher a couple who specialise in balloon modelling, circus acts and face painter and our very loved reptile man bring all your favourite creepy crawlies. We also have a special treasure hunt where you need to help find all of the Stratton Parish Councils Pets and after sit down and enjoy a story from our story teller. George Scarott’s Fun Fair will be making a special appearance with a bungee run. Most of our children’s activities are free of charge with small proceeds going to our chairman’s charity.

As previous year’s food is a huge part of the Stratton Festival and the events team have worked their magic with local suppliers to ensure that the best served food is at their event. With an array of foods coming along this year from burgers, noodles, curries, fudge stand, ice creams and a waffle company. Why not have your pictures taken with their Waffle Mascot!

Our main stage is full from 12.00pm with Swindon Majorettes opening the show and ending with live music from Kova Me Badd. We also have various different acts throughout the day including live music and different dancing acts.

If any charities, musicians, community groups, volunteers or local businesses would like to get involved with the event, please email Jo or Emily on events@strattonstmargaret.gov.uk.
