Aycliffe Festival Needs YOU!

Members of the public and organisations are invited to attend an open evening at the Newton Aycliffe Youth and Community Centre, Burn Lane, Newton Aycliffe on Tuesday 25th October at 6pm to discuss possible involvement with the Aycliffe Festival in 2017.

The details of the Festival are 14th – 30th July inclusive, 17 days in total encompassing three weekends.

The concept of the Festival is to involve as many Aycliffe groups, businesses and voluntary organisations as possible, encouraging them to organise an ‘event’ within the timescale of the Festival.

Events organised by the local community during the past two years have provided a wide variety of experiences for children and adults and delivered a range of activities and learning experiences throughout the Parish.

It is hoped that the outcome of the meeting will be that groups will give further consideration or agree in principle to providing a community event during the timescale of the Festival.

Light refreshments will be provided and I would be grateful if you could e-mail festival@great-aycliffe.gov.uk at the above address, or telephone  Mrs Robinson to let us know if you or a member of your group/organisation/business will be able to attend to allow us to cater for you.

If you are unable to attend on that date, but would be interested in receiving further information when it is available, please contact us and we will add you to our Festival mailing list.

Additionally, if you know of anyone else who may be interested, I would be grateful if you could pass on the details of the open evenings to them.
