Stamford Georgian Festival is in full swing, with an exciting programme of events taking place today and across the weekend.

The popular Georgian Street Market will take place in Broad Street on Saturday and Sunday, with free street entertainment. Along with more entertainment on the Meadows, with a selection of ‘Georgian’ traders, a children’s traditional fairground, Punch and Judy shows and donkey rides.

Members of the Coldstream Regiment of Foot Guards 1815 will also be parading on the Meadows.

Also taking place around the town will be the opportunity to ride in a delightful horse-drawn omnibus or an authentic mail coach.

There will also be a number of tours taking place around Stamford Town Hall, including a ‘live trial’ in The Old Courtroom.

Stamford Arts Centre will also be hosting a number of activities, including patchwork and quilting workshops, a Georgian fashion show, a screening of Pride and Prejudice and ghost walks in the evening.

Horrible Histories will also be making a return appearance at The Corn Exchange, performing its West End show ‘Barmy Britain’, one that all the family will enjoy.

Topping off the excitement of the weekend, will be the famous Stamford Bull Run, which will take place tomorrow at 6pm. Watch a thrilling carnival display as the bull weaves its way around the town centre, leading to the Meadows where it will meet its fate in a spectacular finale event.
