Families and teenagers flocked to Coronation Park for two big highlights of Eastwood Arts Festival — and hundreds more locals are expected to get involved in the annual event in the coming week.

Last weekend was a busy one as a family fun day and the VIBE event for teenagers and young people took centre stage.

Attractions at the fun day 
included music and dance workshops, face-painting and plate-spinning and an Advertiser photographer was on hand to capture all the action.

VIBE featured live music and laser tag, and even a performance by a teenage dance group who have attended dance workshops over the last two weeks to choreograph a routine.

Councillor David Bagshaw opened Saturday’s fun day and said that it had been a fantastic success which he thoroughly enjoyed.

He added: “With the glorious weather and a multitude of stalls to keep everyone busy, it was a perfect day.”

Other events in the last week have also included a dance class for the over-60s and a fully-booked pottery workshop at Plumptre Hall where locals got to create their own pots.

But attentions are now turning to the coming days’ attractions, which range from comedy nights to stained glass workshops.
