There’s the ever-popular Goosfest Buzz Comedy Night, plus drama, workshops for painters and a lecture on the history of political cartoons.
Community events include a weekend Art Exhibition featuring 16 North West artists, a Parish Archives display about the village’s farming heritage; story-telling for children, and an autumn flower display from Goostrey Flower Club in the Parish Church.
There is also lunch at The Swettenham Arms accompanied by musical entertainment; afternoon tea at The Yellow Broom restaurant with entertainment from Royal Northern College of Music musicians, and a Greek supper to accompany an ABBA tribute night.
