BOFF is here!
The highly anticipated event is finally HERE!! (well, almost, it will be by tomorrow!) Due to the great success of previous years, the festival this year has been extended to two days, and it's a weekend full to the brim with various events. Saturday sees the BOFF kick off at midday, the bar opens and the local foodies will be cooking up a storm to provide you with a variety of different tastes. The weekend includes the usual entertainment for all the family, music, food and more... The 'Great Gappo' children's entertainer will be making the crowd laugh at 2pm, and The Great Olney Bake Off competition will be underway at 3pm. There will be music from a variety of acts between 1pm and 10pm, including Alan Houghton, Bolivian Sunshine Dogs, Mad Mods and Englishman and more!
This year Sunday will incorporate the Olney Farmers market, where stallholders will be cooking up some tasty treats for you to try from 9am. The bar will open at 11am, and then from 12 midday the highly anticipated finals of 'Rock with BOFF' will be held. The heats have been going on since July, so from 12-5.30pm you'll be able to see the eight finalists and vote on who should be crowned the winner!
We're hoping the sun will be shining for a great, relaxed and enjoyable weekend enjoying local talent and great foods and drink with friends and family. Don't miss out on this yearly event, it's getting bigger and better every year!
