After two years of cancellations, the Sweeps Festival returns for it's 40th year with a celebration of folk music and dance. It will see Rochester transformed into a colourful parade of musicians, Morris dancers and folk traditions for three days across the Bank Holiday weekend. Many of the pubs and venues that line the high street will be hosting live music all day and into the evening, while the main stage will be showcasing some fantastic musicians until the late afternoon. There will be plenty of food and drink from local producers, gifts and memorabilia from independent traders. The event is FREE and no pre-booking is necessary. Find out more by visiting:
