Here Comes The Sun Festival

£8 adv/£10 otd/under 14s free

Back for its 10th year, Here Comes The Sun is an all-day festival of music, arts, and everything the centre holds dear.

From 11am till 11pm, the whole building will be transformed into a colourful cathedral of culture, with music, dance, kids’ activities, food, drink and much, much more. The doors to the centre are flung open to give our community all-area access, with performances happening on three stages - including the back garden! - and art and decorations cropping up in every conceivable corner. We even roll out the (fake) grass to make our courtyard a wonderful play area for kids!

As it’s our 10th year, we’re planning some truly special celebrations. Keep an eye on our website and social media for news and updates as the line-up of acts and attractions grows in the months leading up to the festival.
