THE 12th annual Stockton Heath Festival has been described as a “roaring success” by organisers after drawing huge crowds once again.
Andrew Renshaw, who booked many of the events said, “The organisers were delighted to see the Festival come together so well. There was a good mix of activities to enjoy and the Festival field and local venues were packed over the weekend. Despite a cloudy start to Saturday once the sun arrived, it stayed.”
Each year, organisers look for ways to improve the Festival. Highlights included the Saturday night sell-out Motown Gold, classical music such as the talented Chameleon Wind Quintet, open-air theatre production of Shakespeare’s The Tempest, world-famous author of Bob the Builder Curtis Jobling and many free events on the Festival Field.
Claire Kennedy, who has been involved in the Festival for a number of years added, “It was wonderful to see so many people enjoying themselves. Tudor Pole who started the event all those years ago, might not recognise what the Festival it has become. Once again this year’s success is down to providing something for everyone, of any age. This Festival was created to bring the whole community together in celebration – and this year continued that tradition.”
The organisers would like to thank sponsors, supporters, volunteers and everyone who came along for making the 2019 Festival such a roaring success.
