All the world’s a stage for Stafford – 26th May

Singing, dancing, and street theatre will be coming to Stafford this weekend as part of a festival to show the town’s influence on the world’s stage.

Stafford in the World is now in its third year and will take place in the town’s Market Square on Saturday (26 May).

The Stafford Borough Council event celebrates the huge variety of links that the town has with many different parts of the world.

Thousands of people are expected to come in to town to get a glimpse of what charities, business and community groups have to offer around the globe.

The festival has previously proved popular with shoppers and visitors and this year there will be more than 20 organisations in attendance including Perkins Engines and Chernobyl Children’s Project – which support the children whose lives are affected today by the nuclear reactor explosion in Ukraine in 1986. There will also be local groups such as Stafford Corps of Drums and Stafford Film Theatre on show.

Councillor Jeremy Pert, Cabinet Member for Communities, said:

“Stafford has an amazing variety of connections around the globe which many residents and visitors to the town will not be aware of and we want this festival to be a fantastic opportunity to showcase them.”

Marquees will be open from 9am until 4pm with performances throughout the day.
