The concept of the Festival is that ordinary people belonging to organisations, residents’ associations, or community centres, organise an event or events in their own area for everyone to enjoy. The date for 2017 is 14th – 30th July inclusive, 17 days in total encompassing three weekends.
We are always ready to hear from you if you are thinking about organising an event for the Festival and we have hold meetings especially for current, new and potential organisers to come and discuss their plans, ask questions and find out just what the benefits are of organsing an event for your community. The next meeting will be held in November.
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 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.
