Family Fun Day Sponsorship Announcement

Monmouth Festival is pleased to announce that Monmouthshire Building Society will be sponsoring this year’s Family Fun Day. 

“We are delighted that Monmouthshire Building Society has chosen to partner with the Festival this year” says Monmouth Festival Chair, Mel Ralph. “Their sponsorship will help us to continue to provide a high quality family fun day experience”

Monmouthshire Building Society has been providing mortgage and saving products to the people of Monmouthshire for over 149 year, and will celebrate its 150th birthday in 2019. The Society is currently undergoing a rebranding process, and will be rolling out new consumer and intermediary websites in the summer. Founded as a mutual building society, the Society is proud to support Monmouth Festival.

Monmouth Festival 2018 will run from 27th July to 4th August with the Family Fun Day taking place on Sunday, 29th July from 12 pm to 6pm.

Taiko Mynydd Ddu, the first community Takio drumming group established in Wales, will get the event off to a pulsating start. The Savoy Youth Theatre Academy, followed by Monmouth Band will continue the entertainment and from 3pm onwards Monmouth Festival Unplugged Wildcard winners will take to the stage.

There will be plenty to do:  Dash Panache will be back to help you brush up on your circus skills or experience new ones.  You’ll be able to try your hand at wicker work at Hatton Wicker’s workshop or have a go on a Segway courtesy of  Go Ape! Forest of Dean.  The ever popular bouncy castle, inflatable and fair rides will be supplied by Megabounce.

There will be plenty to see: Monmouth Fire Brigade’s demonstrations proved so popular last year that we’re thrilled to have them back.  There will be a variety of stalls including the Festival food and drink traders.

We would also like to thanks Nick Penny Event Services for his continued support and sponsorship of Monmouth Festival Unplugged (previously the Busking Festival) and Monmouth Town Council for awarding us funds from the MTC Larger Grant Scheme.
