A FREE guide highlighting all the events plants for the Rugby Festival of Culture is available from the Rugby Visitor Centre from today (Thursday).

Rugby Festival of Culture, supported by Rugby First and Rugby Borough Council, is back following the success of the first event in 2011.

Taking place in Rugby town centre, the festival provides a fantastic platform for local musicians, dancers, comics, artists, writers, actors and singers to show case their talent and be part of what is already one of Rugby’s biggest and most popular events.

In the 36-page guide there is an exciting array of activities that are guaranteed to offer some great fun and entertainment for everyone.

This year’s festival includes an outdoor performance of the Railway Children, a food fayre, street entertainment, cider and beer festivals, music workshops, exhibitions, live bands, dance, classical performances, opera, story-telling, poetry, open air readings, craft workshops, comedy, walks and much more. Many restaurants will also be serving up special menus throughout the festival period, which runs from July 2 to 15.
