  1. Late Line up Changes for Saturday>>

    Unfortunately we have lost the Madisons for Saturday evening 10.15pm at the Haven Arms. Tried 2-3 options for a direct replacement but rather than re-jig the printed programme the organisers are sticking with the line up and the other acts will absorb the time.

    ALSO .. Mark Rowland is unable to take part at the Haven at 4pm and Alexandra Hall at 1pm. David Gray is his highly recommended replacement so we look forward to seeing David instead.

      CARNIVAL PROCESSION: Leaves Ivy Lane at Market Hill at 2:30pm – Get there in good time if you are taking part!
      Art Exhibition At Frames of Hedon on Souttergate.
      Stalls and Food: At Market Place.
      Charity Stalls: At Market Hill.
      Free live music by MASC: At Market Hill 12.30-2:30pm.
      MASC entertains

  2. AN EXHIBITION of Art is being staged by by pupils of Janet Thackray (Art Tutor) on the Saturday of HedFest.

    This exhibition is being held at Frames of Hedon, 20 Souttergate, by the Mayor of Hedon for his charity CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young).

    Please feel free to come in to walk around and browse between 10 am – 4:30pm. Any donations to CRY would be gratefully received.
