The countdown is on.
As we write this post, we have 8 months and 1 days to go to the big day. That doesn’t seem that long as we are busily trying to organise everything behind the scenes.
We wanted to keep you updated though on what is happening.
So far we have recruited most of our Organising Committee roles, we are so grateful for the amazing response we received. We will be introducing you to the team shortly.
How can you get Involved?
Many people have been emailing us asking how they could get involved, if they could have a stand, if they could offer an activity, etc. So we have put together some basic information and ways to get in touch:
If you have a musical act/group and would like to appear, please contact us through our Acts and Activities page
If you have an activity, you believe our audience would enjoy (music workshops, dance troupes, inflatables etc) then please contact us through our Acts and Activities page.
If you have a stall selling crafts, spinning wheels or any merchandise, then please contact us through our Trade Stalls page
If you have a food stall or van and would like to have a space at the event, please contact us through our Food Stall page
If you are part of a local charity, group, provider or organisation and would like to book a space in our Information tent, then please contact us through our Information Tent page
If you would like to volunteer on the day or help out behind the scenes before the event, please contact us through our Volunteer page.
We are hoping to have tickets on sale for the event by October half term.
We will be offering an early bird discount for ticket sales before Christmas – what a great Christmas gift, especially if you spend the months before with people asking what they can buy.
We have had so much interest, we know they are going to go fast, so if you would like to be the first to know that tickets are going on sale, with a link to the page before the general release, please sign up below.
We will email you with the chance to purchase two days before the ticket sales are open to everyone on our site.
We want to put together a list of Frequently Asked Questions. It would be so easy to just do a standard list of FAQs but we want to ensure we are answering the questions you have, not just the ones we think you will have.
So if you have a question at all about the event, please can you email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will publish the questions together with answers before the end of September.
