Rochester’s Sweeps Festival in 2017 is going to be held on Saturday 29 April, Sunday, 30 April and Monday, 1 May. Pre-festival music will be held on Friday, 28 April.
The festival, which runs on each day between 10am and 6pm, celebrates the traditional holiday chimney sweeps enjoyed on 1 May each year. Locally, they used to mark the occasion by staging a procession through the streets of Rochester.
