Burley Summer Festival 2017
Welcome to our 9th Summer Festival - we hope there is something in the week to please everybody. Many of our most popular events will be happening once more alongside new ones.
This year the walks programme offered by Walkers are Welcome has been extended, and in response to demand we again have a ceilidh in the programme.
We have two musical treats on the first night. Well known folk rock singer Charlie Dore will be performing in the Social Club – tickets will be in big demand for this event. We also have our annual concert from the Wharfedale Chamber Ensemble, with its conductor David Greed, Opera North.
The theme for this year’s ‘Scarecrow Trail’ is ‘Back to the 80s’ and we’re looking for another excellent response.
The Festival week this year will run from Saturday August 19th to Sunday August 27th with a small number of events taking place immediately before or after the main week.
Sunday 20th is the BIG DAY in the week and the ever popular Burley Classic Show will take place alongside the Craft Fair and the Food and Drinks market, and many other events.
The Festival programme will be delivered to all households in July and it provides opportunities for local businesses and organisations to advertise.
The Festival is organised by a Committee supported by additional volunteers in the run up to the Festival and during the week.
Currently we have a small number of vacancies on the Committee and would like to hear from anyone who would like to get involved in helping to organise the Festival - please contact Sylvia Tilford on firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will be providing regular updates on the Festival on this website, through press releases, and via social media - follow us on Twitter and on Facebook.
