Dearest residents …
Welcome to BoomTown’s annual Summer Fair 2014
In the year 2013 all manner of changes took place within the City walls, the most major being the split of the districts, which introduced several individual and distinctive areas, each revelling in its own unique flavour, energy and immersive narratives.
The split prompted the arrival of the first ever BoomTown General Elections, giving the power to the town residents. Each district was appointed a councillor to represent their chosen area and public voting took place at the Town Hall on the Sunday of the Fair.
The victor and stand out winner of the public’s affections was Barrio Loco’s councillor, Burrita Jose, who is currently settling in nicely to her new position as Town Mayor for 2014!
Without further ado we welcome you into a little insight of what our new Mayor has in store for the future of BoomTown…
NEW FOLK AND WORLD MUSIC STAGE
That’s right folks, you heard it here first. Top secret info has been smuggled out of the Town Hall and we can announce that Burrita Jose has given the green light to a brand new Folk and Roots main stage to stand alongside the Lion’s Den and The Town Centre stages. All under one huge new themed area, this brand new stage will showcase the best hand-picked Folk music from all around the world! Plans are still in the early stages but moving fast and we can’t wait to tell you more… watch this space!
NEW MAIN STAGE – KIDZTOWN
With the success of last year’s KidzTown, Burrita Jose is adding even more excitement into the mix by introducing a whole new stage for the little and big to get their dancing feet out n about! Filled with the supernatural sounds of BoomTown’s playlist, this stage is certainly not going to be as mini as some of its audience!!!
CIRCUS FOLK AND TOWN CHARACTERS
The Fair is world famous for bringing together the very best in interactive theatre, circus and walkabout acts!! Your new Town Mayor is pushing this in every direction possible, prepare to be wowed as you wander through the city streets! Around every corner and behind every door there will no doubt be a gaggle of crazy and wacky characters ready to take you on a journey into the unknown!
