Twickfest has arrived! It was heaved into life in the traditional way – the tug of war – outside The Eel Pie pub on Church Street. As in previous years teams from around the town are battling it out for the title of top tuggers. In fact, with the election dust still settling we can’t help but think that some kind of political party based theme might have been appropriate. Or, given the relatively low turnout for local elections, perhaps introducing tug of wars into the democratic process could be one way to drum up a bit of excitement.
Meanwhile, there’s a wide range of events going on across June to keep you busy. You can check our listing of what’s on when by clicking here. Or if you just want to see photographic evidence of ‘stuff’ then we’ll be adding photos of assorted festival shenanigans to this item over the weeks ahead.
