And according to weather reports, the sun is expected to shine on this year’s event.

Rebecca McGlone, festival organiser said: “We’re really excited to be celebrating our 7th year of the Gloworm Festival this week. It’s been such a soggy summer so far, so to learn that the the sun has decided to join in the celebrations too makes it even lovelier.

This year’s event is going to be bigger and better than ever before, with performances and activities for all the family to enjoy. We hope that our festival goers will have a great time experiencing activities, workshops, and performances that they’ve never tried before."
