Funding the Festival is a huge issue and having decide that we were really going to focus on fundraising this year we certainly got off to a great start!
Of course neither event would have been a success without your support, so a huge thanks to you, the people of Monmouth.
If you missed either of these events, don't worry there will be another MonFest SteetFood Experience on Friday, 18th December, a New Year's Eve Extravaganza at The Riverside is being organised as we speak and more events are planned for 2016. Keep an eye out for updates on Facebook and Twitter.
The Riverside weekly Friday Night Live Music Sessions are proving to be very popular and it's great to see so many local musicians growing in confidence and experience. If anyone would like to know more about these session please contact Ollie.
As well as fundraising events this is the time of year when we start talking to possible sponsors and identifying and applying for grants. Post Festival reports have to be completed and submitted for 2015 Festival grants.
The Ents Committee are working on the line up for 2016 and with over 350 applications already received that's not as easy as you might think!
Budgets have been set so we can begin making "must have" and "it would be nice to have" lists of equipment and infa-structure needed for 2016.
237 days to go to opening night!
