MORE than 60 events will be taking over Winchester next year, including familiar favourites and festival debuts.

From food and music to ‘Peddle, Paddle, Pace’, the city has lots in store for all the family next year.

Sarah Davis, chair of the Festivals in Winchester group and Winchester BID manager, said: “I can’t believe how excited I am for next year. The wide range of festivals and events Winchester attracts each year is wonderful. We’ve got new and familiar features that will appeal to all the family and I’ll be at most of them.

“There’s an appetite to do things differently and encourage people to come at different times of the year. There’s something for everybody, it’s about expanding what Winchester has to offer.”
