March Summer Festival is a major FREE community event which has been running alongside the March Gala, since 1997.
In its first four years the Festival formed part of the Fenland Colourscape Music Festival. Now, an open-air stage is set up in West End Park for a weekend and the programme encompasses music and activities to appeal to all ages and tastes including the March Lions Gala and Carnival Parade on Saturday and Picnic in the Park on Sunday.
We enjoy Young Bands and new music on Friday night; Popular Music and dance on Saturday (alongside the Gala); and children’s activities, Brass Bands, Jazz and Folk on Sunday. The weekend ends with a Big Band or Orchestral concert.
