There will be music, activities and stalls to suit all tastes and a festival parade on the opening day, with two-hour road closures from 9.30am to 11.30am around the Broadway Gardens, Eastcheap and the station end of Broadway. This will also feature a the Open Art Competition, showcasing ‘live’ art on Broadway Walk as part of the grand open day.
