The Main Stage saw 80s legends ABC open The Big Weekend in style as they headlined on Friday night and the evening was rounded off with a spectacular Fireworks display, The Big Weekend 2017 had arrived in style. The fun continued on Saturday as The Art Tent, Big Read and Write, Alliance Francaise Tent, Sports Zone and Fun Lab all opened to the public, where people could get messy with paints, build a brain and enjoy Table Tennis, Volleyball and even Kayaking! The Local Band Stage was also a hit with Big Weekenders and it was great to see so many talented young bands from Cambridgshire performing. The fun on the Main Stage continued with Aswad and T.Rex performing on Saturday evening, both of these well-loved bands certainly got the crowds pumping. 

The French Market was open throughout the weekend and happily supplied The Big Weekenders with some delicous French Cuisine - perfect food fule to keep them dancing under the stars. There were also some beautiful french nick-nacks to tempt the shoppers.

The final day of The Big Weekend was given over to the Cambirdge Mela, a celebration of Asian culture. There was Bollywood Dancing on The Main Stage and creative dance workshops to get involved with in the Mela Performance Tent. The Bangladesh Welfare and Cultural Association Tent featured music, songs and dancing and there was also some special Hungarian music and dance clases in World Dance Tent 1 which celebrated our twin city Szeged, Southern Hungary.
