Scorton Bikes & Barrows Festival is back for its 9th year this coming weekend. This quirky May Day bank holiday festival is a must for families, cyclists, runners, walkers and visitors wanting to enjoy a day out.
Scorton Bikes & Barrows 4-6 May 2019
It’s an action packed weekend with events to suit everyone – families, cyclists, runners, walkers and visitors wanting to enjoy a day out.
The main feature of the Festival is the decorated bicycles and wheelbarrows displayed throughout the village.
This year will see an appearance from the popular Mr Wilson’s Second Liners, a colourful and theatrical New Orlean’s style band who have recently featured on BBC 6 Music. The band will feature along with several others in a 2-day music extravaganza on the playing fields, complete with beer tent! As usual with this popular festival, Scorton will be donned with decorated bicycles and wheelbarrows; some are themed, some relate to current affairs and some are just good fun!
Some are themed, some relate to current affairs and some are just plain wacky!
