The Broomhill Festival is a local community celebration held every June, which brings Broomhill together, raising money for local charities. St Mark’s plays a key part in the festival in a variety of ways, often hosting several different events including concerts and an art exhibition. The popular five-a-side football tournament usually attracts around 80 teams of local schoolchildren and there is a Family Fun Afternoon at the Botanical Gardens. Events take place in pubs and shops around Broomhill, including musical entertainment and readings, whilst residents open their gardens and the University hosts a gala dinner. The festival culminates in an exciting and vibrant garden party on St Mark’s green.
