Telford’s Commonwealth Games Festival site is now open in Southwater.

The Telford Festival Site will bring the Commonwealth Games experience right to the heart of Telford from now until 8 August in Southwater and will be hosting a summer market with plenty of entertainment, food and drink, and seating where you can watch live Commonwealth Games 2022 action on the big screen.
