HURST FESTIVAL 2015 runs from 12th to 26th September, but do take the time to have a look through the programme now because the Box Office is open at the Players Theatre Thursday to Saturday weekly from 9.30am to 1pm. Alternatively there is on line booking on the festival website There are some very popular events and those which have restricted numbers so early booking is essential, even more so if you missed out last year on an experience, and it is available again this year.

MELTING POT CAFÉ Due to popular demand this community café at Willow Way will be open during the holidays, every Wednesday from 9.15 to 11.30 am. Messy play for the under 5 age group will be provided by The Family Centre and Hope. Drop in for tea and coffee and also serving cakes, toast or crumpets.
