Are you getting married or organising a celebratory event? Are you going to wedding fayres held at prestigious venues? Want to explore a different option?
Then this is the event for you...
Be sure to pencil in your diary - Saturday 16th September between 10.00am and 3.00pm - when Thornbury hosts its very own Wedding Festival called ‘Beaux and Belles’.
It’s an event that celebrates the enormous wealth of provision the town offers for weddings and similar celebrations.
There will be stalls in St Mary Centre where you can meet new service providers, and local retailers will be showcasing their products and services for you to sample and discuss.
It’s a wedding festival with a difference with activities for children and a competition for the best wedding hat worn on the day. This competition is open to men and women – just wear a hat suitable for a wedding, have your picture taken at the Information Stand and potentially win a prize. What could be easier?
