Chatteris Midsummer Festival 2019: 100 Years of Music and Fashion
Chatteris Midsummer Festival took place on Saturday 29 June with the theme #Throwback - 100 years of Music and Fashion. The Market Place team worked with Chatteris Youth Club and the Town Council on activities for the Festival that would take young people and their families on a trip back to the 80s!
The Festival opened with a colourful parade which included the Youth Club in costumes representing iconic video games of the 80s. Social historian and artist Hilary Cox Condron invited festival goers to have their photo taken with two iconic 80's pop images and to leave personal thoughts and memories about the 1980's on the My 80's Generation memory wall.
Local residents of all ages shared their memories, stories, photos and memorabilia.
