THE time is fast approaching for the Clun Green Man Festival.

Combined with the annual spring battle between good and evil businesses throughout the town will be helping to raise funds a local education charity.

Various locations throughout the town will be running jumble and yard sales in aid of Clun’s local charity, Caitlin’s Kickstart Award which gives bursaries annually to Ludlow College students in their first year of further or higher education.

The festival is held to mark the beginning of spring in the town.

Stages over two days the Festival began with Morris Dancing in the town and reached a climax with the traditional battle in the town Square between the Green Man and the Frost Queen.

It starts on Sunday, May 5 and comes to a conclusion on Monday, May 6.
