Stratford-upon-Avon River Festival
July 4, 2013
Looking for a family-friendly event with lots going on and beautiful surroundings? At Menzies Hotels, we make it our mission to find out about the best events in all our locations. Our Welcombe Hotel and Spa is situated in the beautiful and historic town of Stratford-upon-Avon, which is the setting for the annual river festival from 6-7th July.
Featuring live music, narrow boats on the River Avon, craft stalls and even a boat parade with fireworks, the 2013 Stratford River Festival is set to be an exciting and spectacular affair. There really is something for everyone; from children’s activities to delicious food and drink outlets, all opposite the world-famous Royal Shakespeare Theatre.
There will also be a diverse range of street entertainment throughout Stratford-upon-Avon’s picturesque town centre, and on Saturday night the Avon River will come to life with an illuminated boat parade followed by a spectacular firework display. With so much to see and do, why not make the most of the weekend by booking a stay at the nearby Menzies Welcombe Hotel and Spa?
Don’t forget, Menzies Important Kids (M.I.K) has been introduced across all our hotels to improve the travel experience for families with youngsters. Each hotel offers a dedicated check-in area for children, complete with steps for the smaller traveller and specially designed M.I.K registration forms. Every child receives a wrist band which entitles them to a complimentary ice cream and unlimited juice and water for the duration of their stay.
