We’re 50!

We’re’re one of the longest running and largest completely independent free community festivals in the country. This year will be our 50th festival and we’d like to make it special, but we need your help. The festival is run entirely by volunteers and we need a huge team of people, not just on the day but during the preparation stages too. You don’t need any previous event experience, just a can-do attitude! It’s not at all glamourous but it’s great fun and very rewarding. If you’d like to get involved, please fill in the volunteer form. We meet on the second Thursday of the month, starting from September.

Photo appeal

Have you been attending the festival for years? Do you have any favourite memories or photos? We’d like to build up a record of the festival’s fifty years, so if you have old photos – particularly from the 1970s or 80s, we’d love to see them. You can email them to us or post them on our Facebook page.
There’ll be a special prize for anyone who has a decent shot of Amy Winehouse when she performed!
