The first events of the 2022 Jesmond Community Festival are on Saturday 7 May. Not long to go now! Make sure that you pick up a printed programme from Jesmond Library or Jesmond Pool. There are also copies available in many other community venues. Or of course you can search the festival website www.jesmondcommunityfestival.co.uk .

On 7 May the festival starts early in the morning with a Dawn Chorus Nature Walk. Later on in the morning you can visit Jesmond Food Market on Armstrong Bridge (where there will also be a stock of Festival programmes) and Jesmond Community Orchard’s Plant Stall on Acorn Road (outside Boilerhouse). Then on to St George’s Green for the Spring Fete or Jesmond Pool for a Swim Workshop with Alex.
