Tewkesbury’s Big Weekend

Looking for something to do on the 16th & 17th of May 2020? Well look no further than your own High Street and Riverside, as Tewkesbury’s Big Weekend returns and looks to be bigger and better than ever before.

Tewkesbury’s Big Weekend was originally started in 2015 by a small group of Tewkesbury residents that wanted to show the locals and residents of neighbouring towns and villages that Tewkesbury is open for business and to show off what great community spirit we have! It’s the reason we spread activities out around the town, so people can go to places they may not often visit.

For 2020 we will be able to have stalls inside the Town Hall and we can’t wait! We’ve got big plans for it be full of wonderful local crafts, you may even be treated to a demonstration or two. You’ll be able to walk through the town hall into the gardens where further stalls and entertainment will be waiting for you.

As you can see, we’re well under way with making 2020 another wonderful year for Tewkesbury Big Weekend. We’ll keep you updated with news and welcome any ideas from you, that said, if you’d like to take part and get involved you’d be made to feel very welcome at our next meeting.

We want Tewkesbury Big Weekend to engage with everyone who cares about the town and has a stake in it’s future – businesses, school, clubs, associations, charities, sports groups, crafters – YOU!

Oh dear...................You have guessed it! Father Christmas is now self isolating in the North Pole throughout November. Sadly he will not be able to visit Tewkesbury on Sunday 22nd November 2020 at 5pm specifically. His elves send their apologies too as they continue to work in isolation until the lockdown ends. Father Christmas has told us that he will update the Christmas Lights team as to when he will pay a visit, so keep an eye on our Facebook page over the coming weeks. He also checked in to see how much money we have raised so far and he's impressed and told us to keep going! Ho Ho Ho! www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/tewkesbury-christmaslights ... See MoreSee Less
