We're sad to announce that we're not going to be able to hold the Rockhampton Folk Festival as we'd hoped in June 2021.
The timetable for lockdown easing and the likely continuing of social distancing means that we wouldn't be able to deliver the top-notch festival that we pride ourselves on in June.
At long last, Thornbury's Independent Travel Agent C The World is excited to announce they've re-opened their doors with reduced hours in order to help you plan your next holiday.

Have you ever wondered what that pretty flower in the pavement is? There is now a nationwide campaign to raise awareness of the wild flowers growing in the cracks in our urban walls and pavements. You may notice that some of the plants in Thornbury, where the pavement meets a wall, have been labelled in chalk. The chalk will wash off at the first shower of rain but meanwhile we hope your curiosity will be stimulated. If you would like to join in or have any questions email Jerry Dicker below.
The Armstrong Hall Trust has reluctantly taken the difficult decision to keep the Hall closed.
Repairs necessary to re-open it safely and legally have been estimated at around £77,000. The Trust does not believe it is reasonable to spend this sum of money in the current circumstances, but will continue to explore all possible ways forward to provide a performing arts venue in Thornbury.
