July 11 – Summerfest at the Ashes!

SummerFest 2015 is a free event that will take place from 2-7pm in The Ashes, Howden, on Saturday July 11.

Featuring live bands, a bar, fun fair and various stalls, we invite families to bring a picnic and join us for an afternoon of live music in the beautiful surroundings of the park in the shadow of Howden Minster.

The free event will follow the same format as Mayfest, which was called off earlier this month after heavy rain on the morning of the event. The Ashes Playing Field Trust are now hoping that this later date in July will see the sun shining and that families enjoy a wonderful afternoon listening to the live music provided by The Fabulous Clogiron Brothers, The Nicol Band, Spotless Mind and Molly Curtis.

The event is being organised by The Ashes Playing Field Trust and all funds raised will go towards the upkeep and development of the park, which is particularly important since the loss of the iconic pavilion due to an arson attack earlier in the year.
