We’re going all out for the final day of MIF23 – put on your dancing shoes for Northern Soul DJ legend Colin Curtis and a chance to make connections at We Gather

It’s always sad to wave goodbye to Fezzy Square, but we’ve got a day filled with activities and events for all ages in the perfect farewell...until 2025. When one door closes another opens, so why not start your day by making some new connections at We Gather where we bring together friends and neighbours old and new, to celebrate new beginnings with a morning of music, conversation and fun.

Bring your kids down to the Square in the afternoon where local dance school JD Dance will be dishing out feel-good vibes.

Winding down in the late afternoon for our final slot on the Square, Dave Haslam welcomes a living legend of the Northern Soul and jazz dance scene: Colin Curtis. With a career spanning decades, Colin was one of the first British DJs to bring a range of genres like Chicago house, funk and disco to the club scene, so we know he’s going to deliver the tunes. We'll be having a Sunday afternoon boogie, will you?
