Coming soon – Downham Festival Week 25-31 May

Front of Poster JPEGA week of music, food and entertainment is on the horizon for Downham Market as festival week approaches.

The 25th – 31st of May 2013 are the official dates and there is plenty planned for people of all ages.

There will be activities at The Howdale on Bank Holiday Monday and in the Town Hall throughout the week – from coffee ‘mornings’ at 8pm in the evening to free musical events. And of course how could we forget the traditional fancy dress parade!

Recently the future of this wonderful festival, which has been running for almost 40 years, has been secured thanks to a team of new volunteers.

See our Downham Market Festival page for full event details and timetables.
