Worcester Festival 2017

Saturday 12th – Monday 28th August

Worcester’s Biggest Event of the Summer is just around the corner!

This year’s Worcester Festival kicks off on Saturday 12th August and runs right through to the August Bank Holiday on Monday 28th August – a total of 17 days of events, activities and fun for everyone across the city and beyond. 2016’s Festival was a roaring success and this year’s is set to be even better!

With workshops, live music, arts and crafts, tours, exhibitions, drama, spoken word events, and even a village style fête, the Worcester Festival has dozens of great ways to spend your summer days in the city – and with literally hundreds of events happening in venues all over the city, there really is something for everyone!

A few highlights to get you started…

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 – and he loves having a boogie to the bands on the High Street! We’d love to see your #PercyPics! Please do share them with us on our Facebook and Twitter pages and we’ll give you a shout out!

CROWNGATE PERCY TRAIL
Percy’s all over the shop! Throughout the Festival, find Percy 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.

FAMILY PRIZE QUIZ TRAIL!
Another fantastic free family event! Every day throughout the Festival you can take part in a free quiz trail around the city centre. Pop along to the Box Office in Crowngate to pick up a form that will take you on a scout about 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, Sleeping Beauty. Good luck!
