Fun for all as festival fever sweeps town

Swindon Advertiser: Youngsters who took part in last's year's Old Town Festival Youngsters who took part in last's year's Old Town Festival

TONIGHT the annual week-long Old Town Festival kicks off at Commonweal School, with a Caribbean-themed event.
 

Throughout the week there will be a range of events, including stalls and static military displays in the Lawn Woods tomorrow afternoon.
The festival will conclude on July 5, with a concert at the Town Gardens with live music into the evening.
 

This year there will be more of a focus on the healthy lifestyle with a family fun run on Saturday morning.
 

Gerry Hannon, of the Old Town Festival committee, said: “There will be some more leisure and active participation for people this year at the festival.
 

“We hope to keep building that aspect over the coming years.
“It takes three years for new ideas to ground in, so we will only know how successful it was in another three years.
 

“The simple reason for the festival is it’s great for people to enjoy themselves, having a beer, but the other side is some of the health benefits.”
