We're Taking you to the Future

The Summer Festival 2019 at Hospitalfield is now in its 3rd year. Visitors will find a lot of events, projects and ideas in store to inspire them during the summer days and nights.

Lauching 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.
