BRIDGEFEST TO BRING COMMUNITY FESTIVAL TO WOOTTON LATER THIS MONTH

Wootton Bridge is set to beat the Autumn blues with a special one-off community festival called Bridgefest.

With over 12 hours of entertainment spread across 5 venues, there is set to be something for everyone.

Filling a void left by the loss to COVID-19 of other events such as Party in the Park and Beer & Buses, Bridgefest aims to give locals something to be cheery about at the end of another difficult summer season on the Island.

The 5 venues of Briddlesford Farm – Bluebell Café, The Cedars, The Sloop, The Woodman’s Arms and Wootton Bridge Community Centre will be offering a mix of food, drink, music and other entertainment starting with breakfast and ending with late-night music.

A shuttle bus service will operate between the venues although unlike Beer & Buses you will need to have purchased a programme to be able to use it. Priority bus tickets are also available and allow priority boarding, a good idea if you want a seat given the expected demand.

Festival organiser Daryll Pitcher said:

“This is about giving our local venues a fillip at the end of a very challenging period for them. It is also about giving the people of Wootton Bridge and others further afield the chance to let their hair down for the first time in a long time.”

The date is set for Saturday 25th September. Programmes and Priority Bus Tickets are available from the participating venues.

Oh, Lord! I can’t choose now… I have been invited to Knit and Natter at Ventnor Library when Bridgefest is on. On top of all that I have to get the chimney sweep to give my flue a pull-through this Autumn. It’s just like living a rock star’s life here on The Isle of Wight. No wonder those London folk want all our houses.

I say! What an offer. How are you with birds’ nests? That’s the real problem, and once a small shoe fell out.
