Sadly, we were not able to hold the normal launch for this year’s community festival, but Marjorie Dodds, the town crier who has launched all previous festivals, has nonetheless written a special Cry for us, for 2021:
Oyez! Oyez! Oyez!
Not out loud,
To draw a crowd,
Is not allowed! YET!!!
Out on the street, there’s a buzz in the air,
Or is it the ether, as groups in Jesmond prepare,
For Jesmond Community Festival, a little different this year!
Some events outside but lots on Zoom
To enjoy from the comfort of your living room.
Go to the website and book from the programme display,
So much to do, to see, to explore!
Week 1, Week 2, Week 3, Week 4!
God Save The Queen!
John North, organiser of the circular walks in the Reid Park Road area, tells us that nearly all the spaces available on the walks are now fully booked, with only one place free, on the afternoon of 28 May. The other 41 places are all taken.
Jesmond Parish Church have joined Jesmond Community Festival with four events to take place over the period 20/23 May, including a Family Fun Morning and Escape Room on Saturday 22 May.
All the walks and tours forming part of this year’s festival are booking up fast! If you are interested, contact the relevant organiser as soon as possible, or you may be too late. Numbers on each walk have to be limited, to stay within COVID guidelines.
