Carnival Day on Saturday 8th June promises to be one of the highlights of the year in Stone – following the Carnival Parade the Blazing Saddles Horse Stunt Team will be the main Arena attraction.
The Festival team are busy putting together a wide range of other attractions for the afternoon, including, this year, the Lichfield Diocesan Mobile Belfry – an opportunity to try your hand at bell ringing.
The evening before – we are having a Party! The Party in the Park will feature ‘Like a Rolling Stone’ the number one Rolling Stone Tribute Band along with local band Monkey Finger and the best local talent from the Rooftop Studios. Tickets are available from Home & Colour in the High Street, Fairway Service Station along the Lichfield Road, or on line via the Festival website.
Festival week starts on Sunday 2nd June with the traditional Raft Race – and already entries are coming in through the website. With the Dog Show and the Junior Football Competition during the day it’s going to be busy – and then in the evening, the annual Festival Quiz at Granvilles.
Next month’s Stone & Eccleshall Gazette will bring the official programme to you, but in the meantime keep up to date with Stone Festival at the website – www.stonefestival.co.uk or follow the Festival on Facebook and Twitter.
