Are you ready for something BIG? in Swindon
12:07pm Thursday 12th July 2012 in News
Big Arts Day takes place at Lydiard Park on Saturday, and is set to attract thousands of people.
Six music stages offer endless amounts of local talent, with everything from jazz, punk, ska and rock to samba, indie, rockabilly and more.
Headlining the main stage are Big Weekend Records, featuring AJ and friends, as well as Josh Kumra, known for his number one hit with Wretch 32, Don’t Go.
There will also be a drama zone, a dance zone, a literature zone, food stalls, charity stalls, a chill out zone, and a specially commissioned Jubilee exhibition tent.
Children can watch out for Tiny the Dinosaur, a life-like Stegosaurus, or have a 1930s-style seaside snapshot taken with three puppets who have jumped out of their sepia photograph.
There will be dry-land synchronised swimming, grannies on revved-up shopping trolleys, giant lobsters and interactive love machines – all in one day.
