We’re Taking You To the Future

The Summer Festival at Hospitalfield is now in its 3rd year and we have lots of events, projects and ideas in store to inspire you during the summer days and nights.

Launching with the Annual Children’s Procession, this year’s Summer Festival takes the title – We’re Taking You To The Future – as a way of looking at the present and possible futures that we are creating.
