17 Jul Glendale Festival
Glendale Festival will once again take over Wooler High Street this Sunday (19 July) with its blend of entertainment, music, crafts, stalls and food.
Events will be getting going from 10am and then running through the day as the High Street is filled with stalls, dancing, street entertainment and music. A main stage in the bus station will host a varied line up with the final band finishing up at 9pm.
To get the day off to a gentle start, one of the early highlights must be the celebration of wool and its crafts at The Glendale Hall. More wool crafts combined with a flower festival and harp and recorder music can be seen at St Mary’s Church.
It’s not too late to enter the fun run, departing the High Street at 11am. The course is completely on the road, being 10km for adults and 2km for children. A little less challenging than the Chevy Chase, then, but a fun and healthy way to start the day. Registration on the day is at the bus station from 9.30am.
A buskers spot at one end of the street should provide off the cuff musical entertainment. But the official line up is launched at midday with a parade by the Coldstream Pipe Band. Later the bus station’s main stage will feature Sam Gibson (2.30pm), Point Blank (4pm), King Size Voodoo Traveller (5.30pm) before Before the Mast (7.30pm) round off proceedings.
The sun’s come back out, my dancing shoes are ready – see you there!
