Following the successful Hoole May Day Street Festival, the Notting Hoole team have decided to hold another event this weekend.

The success of the May event demanded the festival become a regular event so the team have planned the second festival which will be held on Sunday (September 25) in Faulkner Street, Charles Street and Hoole Community Centre.

As well as many of the businesses which will be open, there are 42 stalls booked including South African, Jamaican, vegan food and crafts for the children.

Visitors will be kept refreshed by the bars and pop-up bars from Chester Beer and Wine and Deva Craft Brewery.

Entertainment will include bands, dancers and buskers.

In the community centre, Premier Sports will hold sporting activities such as fencing, handball and archery for the children and there will be Tots Play classes.

Daisy the vintage caravan photo booth will be there too along with Hobson’s cafe. And Dee Ciders will have their apple press in the community centre.

The stalls will clear away around 5pm when Faulkner Street will reopen. But the party doesn’t stop there.

The Lodge hope to open their newly landscaped garden with live music and Charles Street will remain closed where the guys from GHQ will play an eclectic mix of music.

Paul Geddes from GHQ said: “We’re looking forward to playing some music on Charles Street from 11pm onwards. Hopefully the weather will be on our side and bring down a nice crowd to sample the food, drink and music.”
