volunteer

Thank you to our group of dedicated volunteers. The Festival 2021 would not have been a success without your help with: Putting up umbrellas for road signage, putting up 220 children’s umbrellas down Church Walk, helping to erect gazebos on the day of the event and taking them down afterwards, providing visitor information and handing out maps at our information gazebos, giving out prizes to infants completing the Dragon Hunt and much more…

We are looking ahead to next year and would like to hear from you if you would like to volunteer. We especially need people holding a valid first-aid certificate.
