Pughe's Paddock, Grove Road Burbage LE10 2AE


Lots going on today.

After a successful first outing  back in May 2022, Burbage Festival (and friends) are back to "yarn bomb" Pughe's Paddock, with the theme, "Exploring colour in our world". 

Come and admire other crafters' work, and you can join in, too. On hand will be 1st Burbage Guides, who are running workshops and will be happy to offer help and guidance.  

Entry and participation is free, no ticket required, just turn up!  But if you'd like to make a donation to the Guides on the day, any monies go straight into organising activities that benefit the girls directly.

What can you make to add to the Paddock? We’d love to see lots of colourful sea creatures, corals, and other ocean-themed creations. The brighter the better!

Suitable for all ages (including children with adult supervision).

Fancy a nice hot drink while you're here? Often seen in and around Burbage and Hinckley, the Really Awesome Coffee Van will be in Pughe's Paddock, today. They will be serving their rather excellent barista coffee, tea, hot chocolates, smoothies and various snacks. 

At 11:00AM, See Sarah's Shelby Stars, who are a performing arts group for young adults/children with SEND. They have been established for 21 years and are a fun and enthusiastic arts/dance group.  Today from 11AM, they will be performing a short dance routine of many of their favourite pop songs over the decades, and proving that arts can be accessible to all.

There will be some other "pop-up" events happening in Pughe's Paddock and around, throughout the day. More details to follow.

Be sure to visit the Children's Art Exhibition on Windsor St at Connect, in the Burbage Methodist Church, which is running at the same time. 

We have a wide variety of musical performances lined up for this year's festival. and are pleased to be kicking off our 2024 program with a local  singer/spongwriter Josh Darby, at the Farmers' Market just in front of Connect, between 9 and 11AM. 

Come and say "hello" to some of the Burbage Festival team, too (lurking under a bright yellow gazebo somewhere...).

Refreshements and loos in Connect, too!
