Worcester Festival 2015!
Saturday 15th – Monday 31st August
And we’re off! Worcester Festival 2015 is well underway, with all sorts of events and activities taking place all over the city every single day, right up until the Festival closes – literally with a bang – with the fantastic grand finale St Richard’s Hospice Fireworks on the August Bank Holiday Monday. Check out the Events page to find out about everything that’s going on, and plan your perfect Festival fortnight!
Before you browse, here are a couple to keep an eye out for…
PERCY THE FESTIVAL PEACOCK
Look out for Percy Peacock every day of the Festival out and about on his travels, especially at weekends. He’ll be giving out balloons and posing for photos several times a day in the city centre!
CROWNGATE PERCY TRAIL
Percy’s all over the shop! Throughout the Festival, find Percy the Peacock’s cheeky face in 20 shops in CrownGate to be in with a chance of winning a prize! Even better – it’s completely free to enter! Pick up your form from the Box Office in CrownGate.
CITY TREASURE TRAIL
A fantastic free family event, new to this year’s Festival! Every day throughout the Festival you can take part in a free treasure trail around the city centre. Pop along to the Box Office in CrownGate to pick up a form that will take you on a ¾ mile scout about of the city, in search of answers to 20 questions. Pop your answers back to the Box Office at the end, and anyone who answers all 20 questions correctly will be entered into a prize draw, with the chance of winning a Family Ticket for four to this year’s Swan Theatre Pantomime, Dick Whittington. Good luck!
Please book ahead wherever possible to avoid disappointment – even if an event is free – as places on many events are limited. It’s also worth checking in advance about the disabled access for an event – unfortunately some venues and events may not be suitable.
The Worcester City Art Gallery and Museum have some wonderful events running during the Festival – please note that the opening hours are Monday to Saturday 10.30am – 4.30pm, closed on Sundays and the Bank Holiday Monday.
