🎺 Now for the entertainment.

Bands will leave County Hall Car Park at quarter to the hour and will march up Quay Street past the courts across the High Street into St Thomas’ Square where they will play for approx. 35-40 minutes.
Bands will then disperse before the next band plays.

πŸ₯ Medina Marching Band will leave County Hall at 10:45^ and make their way to the Square where they will play for 35-40 minutes. They will then disperse and head back to County Hall.

There will be a number of donation buckets and collection tins on traders’ stalls throughout the day, any loose change you may have is always welcome, how little it might be. However, do not feel pressured to donate, this is a FREE event to bring some joy to the town.

With yet another uncertain year, and having cancelled our carnivals for summer 2021, we hope this will be a nice reminder of how normal life can be and bring some joy back to Newport this July.
