Joining our Committee
Planning this festival is a year-round job! A few of us have been involved since the beginning, way back in 2007, and are willing to make way for those with new and fresh ideas. The main festival committee meets once a month on Tuesday evenings from September to June. There are also sub teams (covering finance, legal, business/admin, bands, public relations, site management, food stalls, trade stalls, sponsorship, non-music entertainment, site decoration, kids activities etc ) which also meet as needed. As we get closer to the event there’s obviously more work to do in helping to set the event up.
But it’s really up to you how much time you want to commit. There are plenty of ways you can help – even if you don’t come to meetings.
What’s in it for me?
Well a free ticket for starters. But it is hugely rewarding being part of a passionate team that is essentially putting on an enormous fundraising party. Helping to deliver one of the biggest events in the region which raises serious money for local causes feels pretty special. And we're a friendly bunch too!
I’m interested. What do I do next?
