BoomTown’s Mayor said…
“The town walls have expanded dramatically for 2012, giving us almost double the space of 2011, yet the population is only enlarging a fraction to accommodate the new streets and stages, keeping the same great intimate BoomTown atmosphere.
Boomtown Fair takes place from 9 – 12 August 2012 at the Matterley Bowl, nr Winchester.
