MayFest at Sandford Station

Sandford Station retirement community will open its doors this May Bank Holiday to provide a day of fun for people of all ages.

Mayfest will be held at the Trust’s Sandford Station retirement community in the village of Sandford on Monday 1st May.

MayFest will feature chocolate tasting, archery, a visual arts exhibition, samba and music workshops, face painting, boules + bowling competition, performances from the Bristol Old Vic Company, the Original Spinners and the Churchill Academy Chamber Choir, plus loads of food and drinks stalls selling delicious locally sourced produce.

To close the MayFest celebration, there will be an intergenerational Samba procession across the site.

MayFest aims to connect residents with people of all ages from the local community and is being organised by regional arts organisation, Wyldwood Arts.

Creative Producer, Rachel Adams said: “MayFest is a celebration of all the resident-led activities and intergenerational work that is taking place at Sandford Station and across the St Monica Trust.

“The day is open to all members of the local community, plus St Monica Trust residents, their families and friends.

We hope to get as many people involved as we can and encourage the wider community to engage with residents whilst taking advantage of all the wonderful facilities on offer here.”

“It’s a great opportunity for anyone who wants to get involved on the day itself. If you would like to run a stall, activity or submit a piece of art for the exhibition, get in touch!”

MayFest will be held at Sandford Station retirement community, Sandford, Winscombe, BS25 5AA. Doors open at 11.00am and the festival will finish with a Samba procession at 4.00pm. All are welcome to come along and join the fun!
