We escaped to the Countryside, on the streets of Southside in Summer 2017! Our annual festival celebrated the great outdoors where wildlife roamed, folk danced and live music filled the air.

Over the weekend, everyone enjoyed the familiar to the peculiar and unearthed the hidden delights of our city. There were lots of performances on the Village Green, music and dance in The Arcadian, we saw a giant tree grow and listened to magical stories and enchanting sounds.

Maypole garlands weaved in the air to the sights and sounds of street-dance and beatboxing, and there was even a cardboard country-scape, a grumpy farmer, a friendly fox and a brass band!

Have a look at our gallery of images from across the weekend – we hope to see you next year!
