Rugeley - Entertainment & Events

Entertainment & Events

Rugeley has recently had some new, modern pubs including the Glass Works (Brewery Street) and the Plaza, the old town cinema converted by Wetherspoon's. There is a charter fair that occurs during the first weekend in June, which is a huge attraction with most people from the town joining in the street parade. The town council also puts on a fireworks display during the last weekend of the school summer holidays, known as "Back to School with a Bang". There is a Christmas lights switch-on during December, which also includes a market and late night opening of shops with the local traders association joining in the organising of street entertainment.

Famous quotes containing the word events:

    If I have renounced the search of truth, if I have come into the port of some pretending dogmatism, some new church, some Schelling or Cousin, I have died to all use of these new events that are born out of prolific time into multitude of life every hour. I am as bankrupt to whom brilliant opportunities offer in vain. He has just foreclosed his freedom, tied his hands, locked himself up and given the key to another to keep.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
