Saturday 22 June

From midday to midnight, Avonbank Gardens, Stratford-upon-Avon

Celebrate the height of summer at the Midsummer Revel. We transform the Avonbank Gardens into a twelve-hour mini-festival where time is of the essence.

Enjoy food and drink, watch pop-up performances throughout the day, dance the day and night away, take part in a Deep Time Walk, leave your mark on the interactive artwork and contribute to the time capsule.

Drop in and out as you wish, but don’t forget, time flies.

All of the Events are Free, no booking is required.  Suitable for all ages.
