Summer Season on Strand Wharf returns for the second year!
Following the success of last year’s activities on Strand Wharf in Old Leigh, Leigh Town Council are pleased to announce we will once again host a series of relaxed, family friendly events on Sundays throughout July.
The Summer Season on Strand Wharf replaces the previous Maritime Festival which the Town Council organised for over 3 years. It was a successful event but with so many other events now happening in the Old Town, the Council recognised the additional burdens being placed on the area and its surrounds with event road closures and noise disturbance.
As a result, a Summer season of smaller events spread over four Sundays offers a varied events programme and additional enhancements to Leigh life with no road closures for Old Leigh Residents, whilst also showcasing Strand Wharf which was redeveloped by Leigh Town Council and has become a popular public square in Old Leigh.
Drop by Strand Wharf for some retail therapy and browse over 15 stalls of goods handmade by our local crafters, with tasty treats and food also available.
Kids Zone returns to Strand Wharf with plenty fun to be had for all ages including, craft, face painting, games and performances.
9.00-10.30 Yoga on Strand Wharf
