Escape to the Countryside, on the streets of Southside this Summer! This year, our annual festival celebrates the great outdoors where wildlife roams, folk dance and live music fills the air.

Over the weekend, enjoy the familiar to the peculiar and unearth the hidden delights of our city. You can find alternative sports days on the Village Green, tranquility in The Arcadian, see a giant tree grow and listen to magical stories and enchanting music.

Watch maypole garlands weave in the air to the sights and sounds of street-dance and beatboxing, or become part of the scenery and create your own cardboard country-scape. You might even bump into a farmer, a friendly fox and a brass band!

Come and explore all that this country fayre has to offer and delight in the transformation of Southside to a place of escapism and adventure.

Be sure to bring your wellies – we’re off to the Countryside!
