Bold St…what does it mean to you? Bohemian, cultural, independent, quirky, surprising, creative, historic, cosmopolitan, freethinking, diverse? Cafes, shops, bars, conversation, street life – a world away from clone city blandness. From fair-trade to serious fun; books, bags and boots; coffee, clothes and crafts; and the best hairdressers in town! If you can’t find it here, you probably don’t need it.??

For the third year running, Bold St Village Traders will be hosting the Bold St Festival – an all-day extravaganza of colour, energy, culture and fun.??With such a wide range of independent shops and businesses you’re sure to find something to enjoy, whether it’s food-tasting at the international shops & restaurants, literary shenanigans at the bookshops, face-painting clowns or chill-out music in the cafes, or just by taking advantage of the many special offers the traders will tempt you with.??

Last year we had the Brazilian samba band, the Black-E’s co-operative games, tai chi demos, open-air stalls, stilt-walkers, ghost tours, a giant collective street poem and a tango salon! This year even more is planned. There are rumours of goings-on at the Bombed-Out Church, refugee musicians and an Eritrean Coffee Ceremony!??

10.00am - 6.00pm
Sunday 26 September
