Warwick’s annual Thai Festival will be returning for its 15th year.

Following last year’s successful show, which saw more than 4,000 people attend over the two days, the Warwick Rotary Club is continuing to work with organisers – Magic of Thailand – to bring the festival back to the town.

Residents and members of the Thai community are being invited to go along to the two-day event which will be taking place at Warwick Racecourse on June 1 and June 2.

Members of the Warwick Rotary Club are hoping to top last year’s attendance.

Running from 10am to 6pm on each day, the racecourse will host Buddhist monks, boxers, dancers and musicians, and there will be plenty of stalls selling Thai food, drinks, spices, arts and crafts and massages.

Buddhist Monks will start the festival off with their ceremonies, and the traditional reception of gifts from the traders.

On stage throughout the day will be a presentation of Thai culture, with dancing, lady boys, music, local boxers Muang Thai and cookery demonstrations.

Children’s dancing and a talent show will also take place and there will also be a children’s play area.

Sponsors supporting this year’s event include: Singha Beer, I-Asia, EVA Air, Costco and Kia cars.

All profits raised will be going to charitable causes.

Tickets are available online by clicking here or at Warwick tourist information centre in the Court House in Jury Street.

Tickets cost £4 in advance or £5 on the gate.
