Hello and welcome to the April edition of the Consett Magazine! Things have been extremely busy at the Consett Magazine offices this month as we have gone out of our way to produce an even bigger and better edition of Consett’s only independent magazine. We’d like to thank all of our readers and advertisers for helping us to make this month’s issue the best yet.
April is a busy month for businesses and musicians all across Consett as we get ready for the Consett Festival which is happening on Saturday the 27th April at Consett Rugby Club. This event is going to be one to remember as local businesses will be promoting their services, local musicians will be gracing the stage and free activities will be available for all children at the event. In this issue of the magazine you will find a wealth of information on what’s happening at the festival including a handy map of the festival site. Make sure you get yourself down for an awesome day of fun and music!
Along with all of our Consett Festival coverage we have some great articles for you to have a look at. Ever wondered about the story of The Transformers on the moors between Leadgate and Stanley? These iron giants are a constant reminder of our local industrial past and the cornerstones of our town. There are loads of events going on during April that we need to remember including Earth Day, St Georges Day and the Queen’s birthday!
So, without further ado, here is the April edition of Consett Magazine.
