Frequently Asked Questions – FAQs
With a couple of headliner events hosted by us, we are inviting the community, schools, businesses, village associations – anyone really – if they would like to add an event of their own to the event calendar. If it is an event that promotes connection, sustainability, creativity and/or resilience we would love to include it in the Festival event calendar
Our headline events run from Sunday 11 September to Sunday 9 October 2022 – any suitable event that falls during September or October this year can be included.
All kinds of events, as long as they promote community connection, sustainability, creativity and/or resilience. Outdoor, indoor, performances, workshops, art, children’s events, etc.
We especially want to encourage businesses and organisations who are doing something clever with their waste or energy to hold an open day to give locals a peek into what they are doing and how.
We’ve written an explainer for how to add events. It covers whether you need some logistics help to make an event idea come to fruition – or if you have an event ready to go. Read more here.
Both free and paid events are welcome – to maximise accessibility and inclusion we encourage flexible pricing and free events where possible. We also encourage fundraising events if they meet our criteria.
