Aldershot Town will be part of Farnham’s first Spring Festival, held in the town’s Gostrey Meadow on Sunday 29 May.
Featuring a soccer skills session with the Club’s Football in the Community Trust coaches, the free Festival – a celebration of the Queen’s 90th birthday – starts at 2pm and continues into the early evening with live music from 5-7pm.
Other attractions include a workshop with the Rock Choir, lessons in taiko drumming from the Farnham Taiko Club and The Dance Movement’s street dance workshop. Parents with babies are invited to bring their baby sling and take part in a ‘sling groove’ session with The Dance Movement.
Among the food and drink stalls are Thai Lotusland, Windsor Creperie, Ding Dong Desserts, the Princess Royal pub and restaurant, Beerfeast Limited and Farnham Local Food. Other local businesses and organisations will also be hosting stalls.

“The Spring Festival will be a great day out for Farnham residents and visitors to our wonderful town,” says Councillor Jill Hargreaves, Lead Member for Tourism and Events. “What better way to make the most of the Spring Bank Holiday weekend than coming to Gostrey Meadow for what will be the first of many excellent community events this summer. Bring a picnic or choose from the selection of tasty food and drink stalls then stay for the afternoon. As well as all our stallholders, I’d particularly like to thank our sponsors, local businesses Trueman & Grundy and Anytime Fitness for their generous support of the festival.”
