Paint the Town Red

We have been approached by the team who are running this event in Workington on Saturday 4th June this year.  They are keen to promote local trade and support businesses effected by the floods.  Any businesses interested in attending should contact Amy - details below.

As you may be aware, they held the festival in 2008 and 2012 to great success with over 50,000 people attending each event.

Their aim for the festival is similar to previous years in that they intend to bring excitement, colour and fun to the streets of Workington. The festival takes place in Workington town centre and in Vulcan Park. The entertainment programme will be lively, diverse and aimed at a family audience – a little something for everyone. They will continue to work with local charities, groups, societies, individuals and businesses to ensure this is a festival made by the community, for the community.

Space is limited and on a first come, first served basis.  If anyone wants to attend, please read on below and contact the team.
