But it’s not just Hedon where programme sales are taking place! In Hull city centre last Saturday, the Lord of the Rings re-enactment society The Fellowship of the Precious, who are taking part in the Hedfest Carnival Parade, emerged from the mist to promote the return of the light and colours of Hedfest to Hedon, and to encourage people to join them on the Carnival Parade. Meanwhile back in Hedon, at the Hedfest stall there, the glamorous and beautiful Belle (from Princess Parties ‘Beauty and the Beast’ characters) was helping to plug the festival.

#Hedfest18 takes place from mid-morning to to midnight on Saturday, 7 July with some 50 bands, acts and performers taking part. The Carnival Parade assembles from 12.30pm at Ivy Lane, Market Hill for a 1.30pm start. It’s a free event, but the programme listing the performance schedules costs £2.
