Rochester Castle Gardens, ME1 1SW
Look no further than the Rochester Sweeps Festival to sweep you off your feet. Chimney sweeps dust off the thick ash on their person and enjoy a lively weekend of Morris dance performances, upbeat music and tons of colorful costumes. This festival celebrates the arrival of spring, a highly anticipated time of year when sweeps could escape the pitch-black chimneys they clean. We will be performing a party set in the castle gardens on the Saturday night, so come along and join us for a great summers evening of great music!
