We have a full and exciting programme…

The WhizzFizzFest will, in grand tradition, kick off at 11am with the Festival Parade from Market Square. Schools are busy crafting the wonderful outfits and puppets around the themes of magic, mystery and famous characters from children’s literature.

Headlining this year’s event will be ballerina extraordinaire and Strictly Come Dancing judge, Dame Darcey Bussell, who will oversee a spectacular dance fitness competition featuring students from local schools. All schools will be invited by email, however, if your school has not received the email please contact our Communities team. 

And adding a dusting of gold to the glittering day will be the appearance of Dame Jessica Ennis-Hill who will host a question and answer session for her many fans and budding future Olympians. Dame Jessica Ennis-Hill will also tell us about her magical new book from her series Evie’s Magic Bracelet.

Tony Hadley, the fantastic singer and song-writer, will also be joining us at this year’s festival, revealing aspects about his amazing life in a Q&A session. He will chat about his love of music and the inspiration behind his new album.
