A great day out is in prospect next month when the first Whittlesey Fashion and Living Festival will be held at the Manor leisure centre.
The festival, on Sunday November 17, will include more than 25 stalls offering great discounts on high street prices, as well as two fashion shows, live music, free soft play for children and a hog roast.
It has been organised by Boome Hair and Beauty salon in conjunction with Fenland District Council and Discovering Whittlesea magazine and has gained the backing of a wide range of other local businesses.
Stalls will be selling Christmas gifts and cards, handmade jewellery, fashion and beauty products, cakes, household wares and lots more.
Live acoustic music will be performed throughout the day by a string of local artists, including Tommy Loose, who has played a number of gigs in the area with his extraordinary harp guitar, local singer-songwriter Misty Jones and the Embla’s Eyes duo.
The two fashion shows will include hair and beauty styles by Boome and dresses by Promissima.
Councillor Seaton, FDC’s portfolio holder responsible for the economy, said: “This is a great example of local businesses joining forces with us to put on something really positive to support the town. We’d like to thank our business partners as well as all the businesses that have booked stands at the event.”
Danny Boome, of Boome Hair and Beauty, said: “We are really looking forward to this. We wanted to do something exciting to bring everyone together and showcase the great businesses we have in this area. We are pleased that so many people want to be a part of the festival and would like to thank Fenland District Council for its support in planning and organising the event.”
