Sundays capers are free with a programme of events through out the day, and a Fair in the Square.

On Monday there is a £5 charge. The main events is at midday on the 500 year old Clun Bridge with the Green Man Battling the Ice Queen.

Go along a cheer on the Green Man. If the Ice Queen wins it is said Winter will stay on in the Clun Valley that Summer.

There is a Craft Fair on Castle Meadow with plenty of things to have a go at, food stalls and lots to spend your pennies on.

An enjoyable weekend for everyone.
