St Leonards Festival 2010: Multi-cultural community puts on a fantastic festival filled with friendly vibes

Having missed out on the 2020 St Leonards Festival, we take a look back ten years in our gallery of pictures from 2010, as street entertainers, stalls and performers filled Kings Road and the nearby Warrior Square gardens.

The free festival is about bringing together the whole community, celebrating the multi-cultural nature of the area, home to more than 100 different nationalities. It became an annual event after being started to improve community relations and the new date has been set for Saturday, July 10, 2021.

A message from the Editor, Gary Shipton: In order for us to continue to provide high quality and trusted local news, I am asking you to please purchase a copy of our newspapers. With the coronavirus lockdown having a major impact on many of our local valued advertisers - and consequently the advertising that we receive - we are more reliant than ever on you helping us to provide you with news and information by buying a copy of our newspapers. Our journalists are highly trained and our content is independently regulated by IPSO to some of the most rigorous standards in the world. But being your eyes and ears comes at a price. So we need your support more than ever to buy our newspapers during this crisis. Stay safe, and best wishes.
