n MANGOTSFIELD FESTIVAL

Mangotsfield Festival celebrates 25 years

MANGOTSFIELD Festival marked its 25th anniversary in style with a community event that drew more than 4,000 people. Festivities were declared open by the mayor, Rich Nicholls, and the town crier Madeleine Bills, then crowds followed the procession through the village to Cleve Rugby Club. This year’s key attractions included woodcarvers, circus skills, morris dancers, and a dog show. While the Punch and Judy show and the graffiti artist were popular with both children and adults, the arena was buzzing with music and dance performances from local groups of children and young people. In line with tradition, a new king and queen were chosen to perform royal duties. These were Toby and Mabel from Emersons Green Primary School, who were joined on the day by several former kings and queens and received a special memento. Chis Amos, a member of the

festival committee, explained: “The overall impression of this year’s festival was that the atmosphere was far more relaxed and it had much more of a family feel to the event, in keeping with its original aims. This is a big

positive for us and something we will strive to maintain going forward.” Mangotsfield Festival has been held annually since 1992 and this year’s event on June 10 attracted 4,300 people.
