October is the month that we put one festival to bed and begin the process of staging a new one.
The AGM held at the beginning of October reports on the Festival’s activities and finances; acknowledges and thanks committee members, crew and volunteers; and brings the Festival year to its conclusion.
The AGM also launches the new Festival year – electing officers, enrolling committee members and embracing new volunteers.
October sees the allocation of jobs and responsibilities; the drawing up of a timeline and establishing a strategy. Artists start applying to play Monmouth Festival 2016. (Only 16 days in and we've already received over 250 application!)
There may be 280 days before Monmouth Festival 2016's opening night but we're already counting down!l
