Local Festivals This May

While the main focus is on the mainstream festivals and which line-up currently has more female artists than the other, we have discovered a local festival that offers a whole bunch of activities as well as music…

Local festivals are a great way to introduce family and friends to the joys of festivals without the full muddy experience. We took a look at our local area and found there’s a great festival coming up this May for the whole family to get stuck in.

Bury St Edmund Festival will once again fill the cobbled streets with music and arts for ten full days. Performances will be held in various venues and spaces around town starting from Friday 18th May to Sunday 27th May 2018.

Jools Holland & his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra were the first act to be announced back in December 2017. The 19-piece orchestra performing at 7:30pm in Nowton Park, will feature drummer and co-founding member of the Jools Holland Rhythm & Blues Orchestra, Gilson Lavis, along with backing vocals by Ruby Turner and Louise Marshall.

High profile films Suffragette and Hidden Figures will also be playing across the weekend of the 18th & 19th May and kids classic Mary Poppins, will be on later in the week. Enjoy a performance from UB40 on Sunday 27th, with many more activities for you and the family…
