We are taking a year off in 2016 but will return bigger and better in 2017
The trustees of the Crystal Palace Overground Festival have made the decision not to run a festival in 2016. The festival has outgrown Westow Park and we are planning to move the main event to Crystal Palace Park in 2017. This will allow the festival to safely welcome the increase in visitors to the event which has grown massively since a park event was instigated in 2011. “Moving to Crystal Palace Park will involve a new direction for planning, organising and funding a sustainable event going forward. We want to ensure that there is enough time for such a big challenge and that the funding for the 2017 event and future events is secured”. During 2016-2017 the festival trustees will focus on ensuring the organisation is strong and ready for the challenge of expansion. This will involve consolidating the governance and funding for the organisation. We will also run a number of fundraising events and will have a few surprises for the community to enjoy! We will support local groups that plan to run some of the regular fringe events such as the children sports event.
Please note The Crystal Palace Triangle Festival is not an event run by the CPOF team
We hope that you enjoy the events taking place on 25 and 26 June around the Crystal Palace Triangle but please do not send us any enquiries as we are not involved and won’t be able to answer you. Please check their website www.crystalpalacefestival.co.uk for programme and contact details – thanks!
You can Gift Aid a donation to the festival as by the magic of the Local Giving Foundation, we will receive that funding despite not being a charity.
Volunteering makes you happy – thank you so much to our volunteers who make it happen!
The festival is almost entirely volunteer run and led and is a wonderful opportunity to get involved with a fun, creative event, meet new people and give something back to your community. Our volunteers tell us that the best thing about being part of the team is that they get to meet their neighbours and feel part of a special event. Thank you to all of our volunteers for the past 5 years – you are the heart and soul of this festival!!!
