Organising Committee

If you don’t mind a little bit of hard work, can spare some time and you enjoy meeting people or love history and heritage, why not become a committee member and join our team of organisers? We are especially interested in anyone who can manage the website content and social media or anyone with a health and safety background. But enthusiasm and a enjoyment in creating something magical happen in the town for a weekend.

Festival Weekend Volunteers

We have not set a date for the next Festival until we have a full Board and organising committee but once we do we will require volunteers for the weekend to help marshall the activities.
