THERE’S still plenty to see over the next few days as Rugby Festival of Culture reaches its conclusion.

The entertainment continues with a ‘Food Fayre’, street entertainment, Salsa night, comedy evening, live jazz, poetry, violinist Nicola Loud and a spectacular Elgar concert to bring the curtain down on the festival on Sunday evening.

The Food Fayre takes place in the town centre today (Thursday) between 10am and 4pm. Visitors can taste, smell and buy some tasty treats from more than 20 stalls selling an array of food and drink. A variety of demonstrations will run throughout the day.

Supported by town centre management company Rugby First, Rugby Borough Council and a wide variety of individuals, groups and organisations, the festival has included more than 70 events over the past fortnight. This week’s attractions included various performers bringing music to the town centre.

Among the highlights still to come is Stringfest, an international festival of string musicians featuring instruments including sitars, guitars and harps. There’s a gala evening at the Temple Speech Room tomorrow from 6.30pm to 10pm.
