Ahead of the Wimbledon Tennis Championships which begin next week, Mick George Ltd are sure to be in good shape’ with the extra miles they’ll be putting in this weekend. The business will be throwing some shapes in Huntingdon and Northampton respectively, supporting a variety of local events with service and financial based support to a value in excess of £1,000.
In the small, quaint areas of Houghton and Wyton, the annual ‘Feast Week’ will be taking place as residents from the nearby surroundings get set to enjoy what will certainly be a wonderful occasion once again.
A whole array of activities are planned, for both young and old to relish. From, musical theatre performances, to bake-offs, as well duck racing, treasure hunts, teddy bear picnics and sporting entertainment, it’s all going on throughout the week. And the finale shows no sign of letting up either, with a complimentary BBQ and Bar available to bring a halt to proceedings for another year.
Meanwhile, just down the road in Needingworth, it’s likely to be a much more raucous affair, as a plethora of local musical talent combine to deliver a memorable event. On a high from the recently concluded Glastonbury Festival, fanatical revelers get to see all sorts of genres from rock, blues and jazz, too acoustic solo routines.
Across the counties border in Northamptonshire, it will be equally as boisterous at the Racecouse, which plays host to the 2017 Northampton Festival. With the aim of bringing the community together, and celebrating all that makes the town great, the fun filled event has much to offer for the entire family. Set to attract an estimated 50,000 visitors, the two large arenas will offer hot air balloons, giant fun fair rides, stunt performances and fireworks, as well as the customary live music and food provisions.
Jon Stump, Finance Director at Mick George Ltd commented: ‘’Not only are we keen to support local initiatives, but we’re extremely keen when it aids the improvement and recognition of talent at grass-roots level. Many of us would have witnessed the remarkable talent on stage at high profile televised festivals recently, but the truth is that these artists started out at much less familiar events and needed a break to reach the heights they currently occupy.’’
Stump continued: ‘’There is so much gifted ability in and around the counties that we operate, from various pastimes, if we’re able to help nurture or develop those skills, then we would gratefully oblige.’’
