Q. How is the festival staffed and organised?

The festival is mainly run by a team of dedicated volunteers. Our volunteer manager post has been funded by the Crystal Palace Park Community Projects Fund and our community engagement officer post has been funded by Big Lottery Awards for All.

Q. How are the funds used? An extensive print marketing campaign of posters, banners, flyers and What’s On Guides are funded to draw the huge audience to the festival. Stages, PAs, marquees, stalls and tents are also hired. The funds also pay for insurance, toilets, first aid and park hire. You find out more about how we fund the festival and also how much volunteering contributes to making it a huge success via our CPOF 2017 Infographic costs and income (PDF)
