On the first weekend of the Festival, Market Place comes alive to the sounds and sights of the Barnaby Big Weekend. Free family-friendly events all day on Saturday and Sunday, with live music, street theatre, story telling, and activities ranging from parcour workshops to kaleidoscopic coding! During the evenings, the marquee in the churchyard is the place to be – live bands on Saturday night, and DJ sets on Sunday.
