In keeping with tradition there will be two Rose Fair parades on Saturday, July 4 – one at 11am and one 2pm – which bring a carnival atmosphere to the town and attracts visitors from across the region to enjoy the spectacle.
The Rose Fair, now into its 52nd year, is regarded as one of the region’s finest flower festivals.
This year’s festival runs from July 1-5 and centres around St Peter & St Paul’s Church, where displays will have the theme ‘Our Classical Heritage’.
Three other town centre churches will also hold festival, each carrying their own theme.
