Would you like to be involved?

If you have a talent…gardening, arts, crafts, music or a hobby such as bee keeping, framing or stamp collecting and you’d like to get involved, please don’t be shy! We’d LOVE to display your work, hear you talk or have you perform at one of the events – you might be 5 or 105, everyone is welcome.

We also need volunteers to help run the festival. The organising team will coordinate and keep time to a minimum and it’s a great opportunity to make new friends.


If this flier has tickled your interest or you know someone who’d be a perfect fit for the festival, drop us an email at:

Please also check the village magazine and we'll be updating this website with more details regularly.
