An annual village festival will be reaching for the skies when it takes place later this month.

Glendale Festival in Wooler is a day of fun for all the family with a host of events and activities.

Wooler will close its High Street from 9am to 9pm on Sunday, July 24, and the festival officially starts at noon with a parade down the High Street, led by Coldstream Pipe Band and followed by vintage and custom cars and decorated wheelbarrows.

There will be music and entertainment throughout the afternoon and evening, with bands including Summerland, The Sour Mash Trio, James and Wood, and Hardly Original.

Other attractions include a display of vintage and custom cars, a children’s climbing wall and performances and workshops by Hang Aerial Dance, exhibitions and street stalls with plenty of refreshments available.

“The aim is to try and provide something for everyone whether you like a quiet wander round the flower festival or photographic exhibition, something to entertain the children, music to dance to or just a fun afternoon out with the family,” said festival chairman Alison Lloyd-Harris.

The festival is non profit making and takes place with the support of Glendale Gateway Trust and is funded by local sponsors and fund-raising events.
