Window displays have taken over premises in the town in honour of A Midsummer Night’s Dream and infused with The Bard's mischievous wit.

There is a window showing the mischievous king of the fairies, surrounded by magical potions and props hinting at his playful schemes. Another window adorned with flowers, dewdrops, and shimmering fabrics shows the fairy queen’s magical forest retreat.

For the little ones, and the young at heart, a delightful fairy trail winds through the town.

As well as events and promotions all week there is also a Why You Like It event on Friday at 7pm in the church.
