The Oswestry Beach, Street Circus and more, in 2023!

Following on from the success and positive feedback from the general public and local businesses, Oswestry BID (Business Improvement District) are excited to announce the welcome return of some great free family-friendly events to Oswestry in 2023.

On Saturday 8th April, the amazing Street Circus makes a comedy comeback, bringing together a troupe of brilliant and madcap performers for the enjoyment and fun of all, on the Bailey Head and across the town centre’s streets.

Then, from May 27th to 29th, the Oswestry Beach returns to Festival Square. A hugely popular sandy spectacle with deckchairs and sounds of the seaside, the event was a great hit with families.

The BID are also pleased to be a major sponsor of Oswestry’s Community Games taking place on 11th June in Cae Glas Park, a major showcase of the town’s sporting clubs, featuring a host of demonstrations and activities to try, such as archery, dance, football, paddlesports, rugby, tennis, and more.

Come the summer, on the weekend of 19-20th August, Oswestry Balloon Carnival will once again bring its amazing array of hot air balloon and shapes, stalls and activities, to the park to raise vital funds for Nightingale House Hospice. The BID are pleased to be joint sponsor of this iconic Oswestry event with Oswestry Town Council.

Oswestry BID Manager, Adele Nightingale, believes Oswestry’s events calendar is outstanding. “When you look at the quality and variety of events taking place right in the heart of the town, we should all be proud of what Oswestry has to offer residents and visitors alike, especially family-friendly events that children can participate in and enjoy.”

“And during February, we have the fabulous Love Oswestry Festival taking place with a host of cultural activities and celebrations culminating in the Twilight Lantern Parade through the streets on Saturday, Feb 25th, not to mention The ‘Ossie the Sheep’ Trail around town centre businesses!”
