The good news is that it’s ready, teddy, go for a Festival on the first weekend of September 2021. Although lockdown restrictions are easing we felt it would not be possible to go ahead on the usual Midsummer weekend – so Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th are the dates for your diary! This year we’ll be celebrating the 20th anniversary of the very first Teddy Ride – are there any teddies out there who can remember that momentous day?
After missing out last year, your adventure-loving teddies can look forward to an action packed weekend but we can’t stage the Festival without our dedicated volunteers and supporters and we’ve been much encouraged by the enthusiastic response so far. For example, Barton’s Gardening Guild will be joining us with their annual show. The Barton and Dunstall Key Trust and St James’ Place have pledged financial support which is much appreciated.
