FALLFEST returns to Glusburn next month with a host of entertainment for all ages.

A David Bowie tribute act will be the Saturday evening highlight of the three-day festival, this year following the theme Out Of This World.

Events will be held in and around Glusburn Institute Arts and Community Centre between September 21 and 23.

Festival director Sue Ingham said: “Whether a music or theatre lover; beer drinker or athlete; young or old, we are sure we’ll whet your appetite with our 2018 ‘star studded’ line-up.”

For the first time Fallfest is working with seven local primary schools to organise a Great Fallfest Sing Off on the Friday morning.

School choirs will each perform David Bowie’s hit ‘Space Oddity’ plus a song of their choice, while other pupils will take part in a|1.5 -mile cross-country race.

Pupils will also build 4-foot rockets to leave at key locations around Cross Hills and Glusburn to form a Rocket Trail Walk.

Kath Thornton of Bronte Bars & Events will return to host a beer and gin festival throughout the weekend with 16 real ales and over 30 gins.

Falling Stars Theatre Company will Saturday and Sunday to present Chris Owen’s play The Last Resort, described as a hilarious and thought-provoking look at a day in the life of a fictional seaside town.

Saturday will be a family day involving a wide array of activities including an adults’ fell race and children’s cross-country race, Happy Yoga, funky flower workshop, street food, junior Bake-off, dog show and the Rocket Trail.

David Live, the David Bowie tribute act hailed by radio presenter Chris Evans, promises a mind-blowing tour-de-force across Bowie’s musical genius. The support act is local singer/songwriter Callum Spencer.

Sunday sees an Open Mic session for singers, poets and comedians, who will all receive a free pint.
