Visit for more details on the variety of events featured in the festival overall

Of course – as a small non-profit organisation we can’t make these events happen without the help of volunteers…if you have a little spare time to contribute during, or in helping to plan the event please let us know. Contact

We are also on the look out for garden lights to borrow for the film event on the 9th, as well as some medium/large speakers to project the film audio around our generous roof space. If you know of anyone or anywhere that we might be able to borrow such do get in touch.

Greatly appreciated!
