After a rainy start to the summer, the sun seems to be finally making its way out, just in time for this weekend’s ChesterFest! The much awaited festival, taking place at Riverside Park in Chester-le-Street, this weekend 22 & 23 June, is a community style festival and we are proud to be a main sponsor for this family friendly event.
