PICTURE SPECIAL: The Thai Festival spices up Warwick Racecourse

Leamington Editorial 11th Jul, 2023   0

THE SIGHTS, tastes and sounds of the orient made their annual pilgrimage to Warwick Racecourse at the weekend.

Thousands turned up for the ever popular Thai Festival organised by Warwick Rotary Club in partnership with Magic of Thailand on Saturday (July 8) and Sunday (July 9).

And the festival was back with its trusted format of traders, dancers, musicians and monks.

The Buddhist Monks kicked off the festival with their ceremonies and the traditional reception of gifts from the traders.




On stage throughout the day there was a top class presentation of Thai culture, with dancing, lady boys, music, Thai boxing and cookery demonstrations.

There were also plenty of stalls selling Thai food, drinks, spices, crafts, and massages.


All the proceeds from the day, which are still being totted up, will go to Warwick Rotary Club’s charitable causes.
