Stevenage Day to remember

One of the biggest and most popular free family events in the area is set to take place next month with many new features.

Stevenage Day takes place on June 12 at King George V Playing Fields with over 150 stalls, including a mini Stevenage Market with street entertainers, set up by the town’s traders.

Entertainment will also be provided in the main arena by singers, majorettes and dance groups, while Herts Fire Service will be putting on a spectacular fire fighting and crash demonstration.

There will also be a funfair, a football festival and a prize draw and for the first time a dedicated music stage with a line-up of local artists headlined by Thin Lizzy tribute act Pheel Lizzy.

Councillor Howard Burrell, the borough council portfolio holder for leisure said, “We are delighted to be able to add a music stage to the already strong roster of attractions Stevenage Day has to offer. We’ve worked hard to put together an eclectic line-up of performers, with something for everyone, and I am sure the new stage will be one of the big hits of this year’s event.”
