Beaux and Belles

A Wedding Celebration Event

Did you enjoy Thornbury's first Wedding Festival called ‘Beaux and Belles’ on September 16th 2017?

You'll be pleased to hear the event was such a success, it's hoped it will return again next year...

The event celebrates the enormous wealth of provision the town offers for weddings and similar celebrations.

There were stalls in St Mary Centre where you could meet new service providers, and local retailers showcased their products and services for you to sample and discuss.

It was a wedding festival with a difference with activities for children and a competition for the best wedding hat worn on the day - open to men and women.
