Crowland Parish Council has organised an 'Unlock and Rock' event at Snowden Field this weekend
It’s time to throw on your party shoes for a mini-festival.
Crowland Parish Council has been working hard to put together its ‘Unlock and Rock’ community event.
It will take place this Saturday at 2pm at Snowden Field, with the last entertainment and fireworks finishing at 9pm.
The organisation of the event, which is free to attend for the community, has been spearheaded by parish councillor Philip Green.
“We’ve not had anything on at Snowden Field because of lockdown obviously,” he said.
“A couple of Crowland shows got cancelled, as well as various other events.
“I thought something was needed to let people unwind and relax and this felt like a good way of doing that.
“We’ve got music on from 2pm until 9pm. There will be various bands, with the One Eyed Cats headlining.
“In the afternoon it’ll be the Stamford Stompers, with a couple of smaller acts filling in as well.
“We’ve got a clown, balloon school and magician doing the walkabout to help entertain the children. We’ve got a local lady bringing her alpacas along for the kids as well.
“It’s just something that people can go along to and let their hair down.
“They can bring their own picnics, bring their own drinks, they could bring a gazebo if they want to. They can bring portable barbecues, unwind, relax and have a good day.
“I hope so. We’ve got a lot of new residents in Crowland this year, so we’re hoping they come along and join the community.”
