The 2015 festival will take place on 24 – 28 June with the main park event in Westow Park on Saturday 27 June.
Looking forward to 2015 and beyond
As we enter our ninth year, the festival is bigger and better than ever but this presents its own challenges as we now need to sustain the event into the future. Funding remains a big challenge and we are investigating charity status plus trying to raise enough funds to pay some part-time staff. Your support as always is needed and much appreciated. We need to raise £76, 500 to stage the festival in 2015 so watch this space for our fundraising initiatives.
Estimated costs for the 2015 event are:
- Salaries (4 part-time staff) £31,800
- General costs £7,500
- Licensing £500
- Operations eg stages, marquees £25,000
- Marketing £6,500
- Volunteer management £1,500
- Performers £3,700
