Chance to get involved with town parade

PEOPLE are being sought to get involved in the Daventry Arts Festival town centre parade.

The Daventry Business Partnership is organising the festival, which will be held from July 6 to 28.

And now individuals, groups and organisations in the Daventry area are being asked to get involved with the parade on July 7.

Organiser Jan Dunseith said: “We’re looking for creative, colourful and lively participant groups of all ages who are keen to promote their organisation, generate new business, recruit new members or just let people know what they are all about.

“It’s a great opportunity to shout about Daventry and take pride in our town. The number of participants can be as many or as few as would like to take part, all we ask is a smiling face and a bucket full of enthusiasm.

“Groups can be in full uniform, paint their face, wear costumes, carry home-made banners, play music, walk, cycle, skate or dance, we are open to all ideas.

“The important thing is to get in touch so you can be registered for the parade.”

An arts festival guide will be available in June.
