Hope Wakes Week
HOPE WAKES WEEK AND WELL DRESSING

24th JUNE - 2nd JULY 2017
 
Wakes Weewakes week industrial revolutionk is the well dressing event in Hope. Originally a religious festival thought to date back to Pagan times, it became an important holiday time during the Industrial Revolution, when local industry would close for the week and the workers would enjoy the sun and a range of activities with their families and wider community, normally taking the train to the coast for at least part of that time.
 
Today there is no need to leave the Valley as all the fun you could want is right here.  With the annual scarecrow competition and wall to wall bunting brightening up the village, as well as a range of activities and events for the entire family, Cleethorpes' loss is our gain! 
 
Villagers and visitors alike can get together and enjoy coffee and cake, live music or browse the art or photography displays. Local arts, crafts and produce is also for sale.
 
hope wakes 1Gala day is the highlight of the week, with the coronation of the gala king and queen and the procession through the village, followed by an afternoon of fun and games on the sports field.
 
Bag a bargain at the car boot sale, or hunt for treasure the easy way in the car treasure hunt! Join in the boat race along the Noe or support the local school at their summer fete. Join in the pub quiz or enjoy a movie with friends. Round off the week with hot food and fireworks.
