Burley Summer Festival

Copies of the 2017 Burley Summer Festival programme have now been distributed to every household within the village, and the Festival events are all now listed on the Summer Festival website (see the link on the above menu).
As in previous years many of the events need to be booked in advance to reserve your place, even though many of the events are actually free; each of those events which can be booked online have a "Book Now" button - when clicked, you'll be taken to a separate website operated by our ticket provider, TicketSource, and all the bookable events will be displayed in date and time order.
For those not wanting or able to book (and where applicable, pay) online then there is the opportunity to make your transaction/s at the Burley library on Grange Road. Full details on both methods of booking can be found on the Summer Festival website.
