The world comes to Stafford this weekend to celebrate the town’s position on the global stage.
Singing, dancing and street theatre will be livening up the town as Stafford in the World takes to the stage for a fourth year in the town’s Market Square on Saturday 25 May.
The event is organised by Stafford Borough Council and celebrates the huge variety of links that the county town has with many different parts of the world. Organisations from the voluntary sector will also be taking part on the day, such as Staffordshire Women’s Aid and the local Lions Club.
Thousands of people are expected to come into town to see what is on offer and take advantage of what charities, business and community groups have to showcase.
The festival has grown in popularity year on year with around 20 organisations attending in 2018 including Perkins Engines - whose engines power the flood defences on the Seine in Paris and provide prime power for the cities of Abu Dhabi and Dubai, the Chernobyl Children’s Project and Soroptimist International.
Marquees will be open from 9am with performances throughout the day.
