Just Giving, Please Click to DonateCROWDFUNDING APPEAL

Plans are well advanced for our long-awaited Festival to be held over the weekend of 1st 2nd 3rd October 2021. The social impact over the last year has affected everybody so, there’s really is no better time to hold our Festival.

The financial impact has also affected our normal sources of funding that are necessary to help pay for our running costs. Like many other events, we are venturing into crowdfunding to help raise the necessary funds to finance our Festival.

Please follow the link below to make your donation. ‘Every Little Helps’, as somebody says and your donation will help ensure the ongoing success of what is Ashford’s biggest self-help community project.

Stay safe and kind regards.

Friendly Guv.

We Are Back For 2021

OK, so it may be a little later in the year than usual, but we are back!!  We did not want to miss another year and the Covid-19 restrictions are finally lifting.

We all know how beautiful autumnal days and evenings can be.  And quite often we still have some lovely sunny days in October.

Dates for your diary:  Friday 1st, Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd October 2021.

The line-up will be released as soon as we know who will be performing, but it’ll be a cracking weekend as always.  Bands and vendors please apply using the links above (on the main navigation).  However, please be advised that we will be honouring those acts which applied successfully for 2020.

Friendly Guv xx
