Coming up this August Bank Holiday weekend is Silsdenbury Fest a free event run by volunteers for the local community. Taking place in the park there will be two days of musical entertainment made up of tribute and local bands, a funfair which will be open on the Friday evening as well as Saturday and Sunday, a licensed bar and refreshments. The bands will perform in a marquee holding 1,000 while a giant screen will be set up outside. This is fun for all the family so join in and bring a picnic to the park and enjoy the entertainment. Strictly no glass or fires. The team behind Silsdenbury are also looking out for people to help on the weekend with litter picking, raffle ticket selling, setting up and clearing away. If anyone can help, call Andy Conway 07957 887078 or Karen Amos 07740 766374. For more information on the line up go to http://silsdenevents. co.uk/about/event/.
