The High Town Festival has been running in the heart of Luton since 2013. Each year is a bigger and better flavour of the community and a great buzz for everyone in and around the area.
High Town Road promises e a stunning and diverse line-up of Luton musicians on the main stage, including bands Exit Black and The Knockouts, Luton Sixth Form performing the hits of Queen, the Luton Youth Jazz Orchestra, plus jazz duo Konni Deppe and Martin Slade.
There are also be a range of activities for children, such as rides and games, with St Matthews Primary School hosting a ‘community sports’ event.
You can stop for a snack at the shops on High Town Road or the food vans lining the street, and where there will be plenty of local crafts and community stalls too.
It all starts with a parade of schoolchildren in their Carnival costumes down High Town Road, led by the Luton Irish Forum Emerald Pipe Band, and the fun goes on.
To round off the weekend, churches in the area get together for a collective act of worship at Hope Church Luton on Villa Road.
An estimated 2,000 people came to the High Town Festival last year (2015).
