Summer Festivals 2010

Local residents have already begun meeting about this year's summer festivals. Both Fir Vale Funday and Abbeyfield Park Festival have set dates and are looking to secure funding.

Building on last year's success, volunteers will be taking the lead again this year, keeping the costs low and the involvement of local residents high.

There will be plenty of ways to get involved, by booking a stall, performing on stage, or volunteering on the day, which might include showing people where different activities are happening, litter picking, first aid support, support for stallholders or supporting entertainment. Both events are also looking for new ideas and people to help in the preparation, so get in touch if you can help.

A new feature this year in the run up to the festivals will be a Talent Show for young people, which will be held on 15th May at the Vestry Hall, where young people can develop their stage performance and show off their skills. Winners from this event will perform on the main stage of both festivals. Contact BCAF to find out more on 272 8008.
