Thatcham Town Council eagerly awaits Thatcham's new Spring event
The Thatcham Broadway has been given a fresh new look for spring in preparation for its outdoor 80s event.
The town centre has been brightened up with bunting hanging over locally inspired street art on the bollards along the Broadway.
Mayor of Thatcham John Boyd said: "Spring into Thatcham is an event designed to welcome our visitors to the town centre and especially the High Street.
“The Big Thatcham Fest-Off last year also closed the High Street and was a big success and the event this Saturday – with a lovely mix of gift, food and arts and craft traders as well as street entertainment on the High Street and a cinema screening and music on the Broadway – we are sure will be as successful and a welcome attraction.
“I look forward to seeing familiar and new faces.”
The council is looking forward to the throwback celebration which will bring 80s music on a giant screen, street food and a market.
Thatcham Town Council events manager John Sackett added: ‘’The event starts at 4pm. Many of the High Street businesses will remain open so you can enjoy the shops and restaurants of Thatcham town centre as well as the attractions of ‘Spring into Thatcham’.”
The Spring into Thatcham event will be held on Saturday, March 26, not Sunday 26 as was reported in last week's Newbury Weekly News.
