Haverhill Town Council has a weekend of free entertainment planned for Saturday 30th June and Sunday 1st July.

Haverhill Mayor Tony Brown says

“ I’m proud that we have another terrific fun packed  weekend organised by the Town Council coming up, which will provide fun for all the family.  Firstly we celebrate our marvellous armed forces on Saturday, then on Sunday it’s our fantastic classic vehicle Rally with free rides on some of the historic buses”.
‘It’s  important to the Town Council that the events we hold are accessible to as many people as possible and so we do not charge for entry but any donations to future events in the town are always very welcome! If you aren’t able to make these events don’t miss the free tribute night concerts on the Market Square on Saturday 4 August and Saturday 18 August. Details will be in the Summer in Haverhill brochure which is out soon’
