The Big Weekend

As the name suggests, The Big Weekend is a full-fat three days of non-stop entertainment. Held at Parker's Piece, the programme is bursting at the seams with live music, marquees, funfair rides and fireworks and regularly attracts thousands of visitors.

Events start with a bang on Friday, with live music and a spectacular summer fireworks display kicking off proceedings in the evening. Saturday's a more leisurely affair, with kids well catered for by funfair rides and the Children's Festival Family Fun Day - although those with an aversion to under 18s can find refuge in the relative tranquility of the bar marquee. Sunday's programme takes a more international approach with world music and a traditional Asian Mela providing the soundtrack to another rousing year of diverse family-friendly entertainment.
