Feast Week brings communities together in Lutterworth

August 30, 2013 by  

The residents of Lutterworth were given the chance to let their hair down and enjoy a few days of fun recently as the town’s Feast Week took place.

Feast Week is one of the most popular events in the town and is seen by many as the start of a run of celebrations which leads up to the Christmas season.

The event is held each year and is a way for communities across Lutterworth to come together and bond through fun and celebrations. It features a wide range of activities for the whole family to get involved with, such as a parade, live music and clay pigeon shooting competitions.

Feast Week leads up to the Lutterworth Carnival Day, which is then followed by the grand Christmas lights switch on, heralding a season of parties for the area.

This year, the timing of Feast Week coincided with another key local event, the Lutterworth Arts Festival, so the two combined to attract more visitors.

Nick Lawrence of the Lutterworth and District Round Table commented on the occasion, saying:

“It’s a really good day for all the family and involves the whole community.”

Events like Feast Week are only successful if they are supported by the attendance of local people. To ensure a big turnout, organisers will have worked with printing companies in Lutterworth to create eye catching advertisements using poster or flyer printing.

More information on other events that Leicestershire Parish Councils like Lutterworth have planned over the coming months can be found on the official council website.
