As part of the Telford 50th anniversary celebrations, the Friends of Telford Town Park are bringing a taste of Japan to Telford on Saturday 21 April 2018 with a traditional Sakura - or cherry blossom - festival.
The Maxell Cherry Garden will be open from 10am as usual until 4pm to wander round freely and enjoy the gardens and the stalls around the bandstand. From 5pm until 9pm the Chelsea and Maxell garden will be illuminated with lanterns and coloured lights including the waterfall. Entry will be by ticket only for the modest cost of £5 each. Children under 16 free if accompanied by a ticket holder. You will be able to enjoy Japanese street food, traditional Japanese music by Japanesque Duo and drums from the Taiko West Drummers along with Origami demonstrations and silhouette cutting.
