This was the third street festival in Chandos Road, timed to coincide with the return of our student population and the last rays of summer sun. At least, that was the theory! We started off with a sharp shower as we set up, but miraculously as folks arrived and the Lord Mayor opened proceedings, the sun came out and shone through the afternoon.
Events were announced in style by our Town Cryer, David Fry. We had the usual mix of great stalls for children and adults alike, including our own Chandos Neighbourhood Association bric-a-brac stall, which raised £220 for funds.
There was a puppet show, face painting and wonderful live music and entertainment on the two stages. When thirst or hunger hit, there were our cafés, shops and bars serving a great variety of snacks and drinks.
All in all, a great day on Chandos Road organised again by the Chandos Road Traders!
