The Big Feast is back!

We’ve been busy planning with artists, partners and our Supper Club to make a return to the streets of Stoke-on-Trent City Centre (Hanley) on Friday 27 & Saturday 28 August 2021!

Our annual two-day event is jam packed with circus, dance, theatre, exhibitions and more…loads of tasty, FREE entertainment and fun for all the family!

There is loads to look forward to…we’ve teamed up with the Sugarmill to celebrate the city’s love of live music in Bangers & Mosh! The Piccadilly Stage is back where you can see poets, choirs, dancers and more. Plus, a raft of first time artists and companies throughout the weekend.

So get Friday 27 & Saturday 28 August on that calendar – we can’t wait to see you!
