Stowfiesta to make long-awaited return to Chilton Fields in Stowmarket after two-year absence




Stowfiesta will return to Stowmarket this weekend following a two-year absence due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The event, which is free to attend, will take place at Chilton Fields.

Although it took place virtually last year, it is returning as a two-day live event on Saturday and Sunday.

David Marsh, events and theatre manager at Stowmarket Town Council, said: "When we closed StowFiesta in June 2019, we would never have guessed that it would be over two years before we would get to do it again.

"Last year’s virtual event was good, but we’re so excited to be bringing live music back to Chilton Fields. The fantastic musical talent on stage almost goes without saying, but one of the things that is always popular, and something of a rarity, is the free family entertainment – so people don’t have to break the bank keeping the family entertained!”

Acts performing on stage include Suffolk-based Jonny Cash tribute band Jax & Co, Renegade Twelve and The Kubricks.

As well as live music, there will be several activities for families in attendance, including circus skills workshop and a traditional Punch & Judy performance.
