This year (2016), WitLet has had the opportunity to be a major sponsor of the festival by promoting it via estate agent boards throughout town. You may (should) have seen them about – Orange and blue is pretty hard to miss to be fair! But are you going to go? Here are some reasons why you should pop on down and enjoy this FREE day out in town:
1. The Kids: first and foremost, the most important people in your lives will have an absolute ball of a time! With puppets ranging from traditional Punch and Judy shows to the more hi-tech Titan the Robot, they will be amazed and awed by the amount going on. I can almost guarantee that after an fun packed, non stop roller coaster of day, you’ll get a nice quiet, relaxing evening when they real tucked up in bed!
2. Fancy Dress Competition: Who doesn’t like donning a costume? This year is a Witches and Wizards competition (calling all you Harry Potter enthusiasts!) and is being held at 1.40 opposite the library. This all adds into the festival feel and really gets the spirits high! Again, you can imagine the kids absolutely love this!
3. Adult Time:Having marched through the streets and precincts of Witham, i think you will have definitely earned yourself a lovely, refreshing pint and a bite to eat! So why not head to the White Hart and enjoy the Beer and Ale Festival? Starting Thursday 15th (FYI), there will also be a hog roast, curry selection, popcorn – I’m getting hungry just typing this! Just remember, you have earned this!
In all seriousness, it is fantastic the INTERNATIONAL Puppet Festival is an incredible coup for a small town like Witham and is a tremendous feather in the cap to all those who work so hard to organise it each year. As those who live in Witham, we should be really proud and head along to show our support. WitLet is a proud sponsor of the festival and hope to see you there this weekend!
