The Festival is not one event, is it lots of events held throughout the Town and Aycliffe Village organised by organisations, residents’ associations, and community centres who organise an event or events in their own area for everyone to enjoy. The date for 2018 is 13th – 29th July inclusive, encompassing three weekends.
We have meetings to help anyone who might be interested in organising an event, or who would like more information about the Festival. The meetings are usually held at 6pm at Newton Aycliffe Youth and Community Centre, all are welcome. Please watch this page for dates of next meetings.
We have 5 events approved and 4 others in the pipeline. See our “What’s on this Year page” for more information.
We are always ready to hear from you if you are thinking about organising an event for the Festival and we hold meetings especially for current, new and potential organisers to come along and discuss their plans, and find out what the benefits are of organising an event for your community.
Events organised by the local community during the past three years have provided a wide variety of experiences for children and adults and delivered a range of activities throughout the Parish.
