What a great weekend of events....2016

The first Boston Spa Big Weekend Festival, organised by David Watts of Boston Spa, was held on 15-17 July.  Helped along by the excellent weather, the event far exceeded the organisers’ expectations.

It all started with a scarecrow trail around the Village, then over the weekend there were musical concerts from rock and pop to barbershop, Jazz to Songs of Praise.

Church Fields was filled with Classic vehicles on Saturday morning and with the scouts demonstrating their challenges and doing a roaring trade in bacon butties.

The Classic cars left Boston Spa and took spin in the country driving around the area of the tributaries of the River Wharfe arriving back to Stables Lane in the afternoon. 

The village hall played host to the Methodist Church Flower Festival over the weekend and was the starting point for Sunday's open gardens, the WI plant sale, and Theatre Works Production all took place at the Village Hall.

There are many people behind the scenes who organised and coordinated all these fantastic events, the Parish Council would like to say a very Big Thank you for a very Successful Big Weekend Festival.
