The arrival of Spring
Look no further than the Rochester Sweeps Festival to sweep you off your feet. Chimney sweeps dust off the thick ash on their person and enjoy a lively weekend of Morris dance performances, upbeat music and tons of colourful costumes.
This festival celebrates the arrival of spring, a highly anticipated time of year when sweeps could escape the pitch-black chimneys they clean. Alternatively explore the Cathedral & the Castle at your pleasure.
