We’re incredibly grateful to all the people and organisations whose support allows this event to happen. To find out about all the different ways you can help support the festival, read on!
We need people who are wanting to be a part of the Festival’s committee, because as it stands at the moment we cannot stage an event this year, but we will keep you posted, this invitation is NOT open to any traders or affiliates, sorry! it would be a conflict of interests. So, we need folk to fill various rolls, please have a think and use the email to contact. It will mean lots of hard work, no just turning up and giving opinions! At the moment we need a volunteer coordinator, who will be active in getting more folks involved, A finance person, keeping tags on what the spend is, getting quotes etc, logistics/health and safety, Marketing and promoting. So if you feel the nudge, please get in touch asap, many thanks
We hold a quiz night each year to raise money for the festival. We would love to see as many of you as possible there for a fun night out that helps the festival to take place each year. Previous quiz nights have been held at the Royal British Legion building in Wythall. Details of this year’s quiz are not yet confirmed, but will be posted on our Facebook page once they are finalised.
If you’re a crafter who could provide fabric offcuts for the children’s activity tent, then we’d love to hear from you. Calls for assistance of this kind are usually posted our Facebook page or emailed to our list of volunteers.
A big part of our funding comes from the money left in the donation buckets by visitors to the festival each year. Thank you to all the people who have donated in the past, and please continue to give as much as you can spare at the festival. It makes a real difference.

Our stewards are the backbone of the festival. If you think you could spare a few hours over the festival weekend to help out, then please get in touch. There are tasks for introverts (setting out chairs, tidying up after activities) and extroverts (selling programmes, providing directions) alike. We are always particularly on the look-out for people with current DBS checks who can assist in the children’s activity tent and level-headed people to assist in the car park during busy periods, but people of all abilities and backgrounds are welcome.
Would you like to sponsor the festival? Perhaps you’re a local business who’d like to sponsor one of the tents in exchange for advertising at the event? Perhaps you run a similar event that our visitors would be interested in and would like advertising space in our programme? Get in touch if you’d like to explore the possibilities of sponsoring the festival in some way.
Can you help us get the word out about the festival to a wider audience? Would you be willing to help distribute leaflets and posters or to share our messages on social media?
