Wow! Things are moving at a pace and with just over four weeks until this year’s festival there’s lots going on and even more to be done.
Our brochure arrived early from the print run which allowed us to launch early, which we did on Saturday 20th June on the Market Square. Brochures were given out and we also put on sale this year’s wrist band. You can show your support for the festival by buying one of our wristbands (Please donate a minimum £1) available from various outlets around the town.
Our t-shirt proved incredibly popular last year but we sold out too early on the larger sizes. We’ve ordered up and these will be on sale at just £8 with sizes available up to XXL. Please show your support and get yours early.
Our team are now busy distributing brochures across the county and with over 20,000 available everyone in the town should be able to get their hands on one soon to plan their festival week.
We have more acts and venues than ever before and so we welcome our new fringe partners as well as looking forward to a fantastic singalong on festival Thursday when we showcase Grease at the Savoy.
Remember it is a free festival in that there are no admission charges. A group of volunteers work hard all year to put the festival on for the town. Without your support it just will not happen, so please come along, enjoy, give generously in the buckets, buy the t-shirts, wear the wristbands and show your support for one of Europe’s longest running and largest free festivals.
