BRAMPTON: Largest-yet Potteries Festival draws crowds to see fairytale displays

The largest Brampton Potteries Festival yet attracted much attention over the weekend of July 13 and 14.

Brampton residents and visitors from further afield found enjoyment as a sun drenched Old Road staged the festival for a sixth consecutive year.

Fifteen displays on the theme of ‘The World of Fairy Tales’ delighted young and old alike and ranged from Old Hall school’s ‘Little Mermaid’ to The Gospel Mission’s ‘ Beauty and the Beast’.

The Mayor and Mayoress opened the festival and toured the displays and exhibitions before enjoying a ploughman’s lunch at The Gospel Mission’s summer fayre.

The following day visitors were invited to a free barbecue outside the church following a morning festival service.

The organisers were delighted that more local businesses got involved this year including: The Britannia Inn, JMJ Pottery, Clare Gage’s Created Gallery and The Flower House.
