Now in its sixth year, the festival runs from Thursday, September 20 to Sunday, September 23 across a range of venues. Festival chairman Roger Nash estimates that between 500-600 performers will converge on the town.

Away from the Regis Centre, a wide range of new events will all add to the fun, increasing and widening the community appeal. There will be a bigger, more spectacular dance programme, expanded street markets, additional music workshops, sessions and sing-arounds and extra children’s fun and games.
