Bearwood Street Festival 11 June 2017

Strange goings on in Bearwood!

On Sunday 11th June 2017 from 11.30am to 5.30pm the High Street will host Bearwood’s first ever community-led music, theatre and arts festival right in the centre of the neighbourhood. We are super excited and hope YOU will be joining us on the day!

Now, there have been some very strange goings on – we’re not quite sure what’s happening, but local paranormal investigator Ivor Goosebump is looking into it – check him out at  Could the recent reinstallation of Bearwood’s iconic timepieces somehow have caused time to go wrong?

All will be revealed on the day of the festival. And boy, what a festival of sights, sounds, tastes it’s going to be!


A theatre trail performed by Highly Sprung will bring to life the mystery, while characters from Bearwood’s past and future will help visitors find the missing ‘cogs’ needed to repair time. Highly Sprung’s innovative blend of physical performance and animated storytelling is sure to excite audiences. of all ages.


And specifically for younger visitors, there will be plenty to keep them busy with futuristic themed crafts, games, and street art workshops in our extra special play area.


Live music on the main stage (in the middle of Bearwood Road, by The Bear pub) will reflect Bearwood’s eclectic musical heritage with something to suit all tastes. Curated by the wonderful Bearwood Promoters, headliners The Electric Swing Circus bring an explosive fusion of sounds that reverberates back through time.

Food & Crafts

There’ll also be cultural and audio feasts provided by the Community Stage, some of the best in regional street foods in the Food Parade (supported by The Bearwood Pantry and others), and a host of local entrepreneurs and crafters showcasing their goods at Bearwood Indoor Market.
