This month we are starting to feature local venues that wish to participate in Wantage Summer Festival 2016. We have already met with the Vale & Downland Museum and the Shush Entertainment Venue (both featured on images below). Both venues will be featured on our website shortly but our aim is to showcase all available venue opportunities so that our local artists and groups can be inspired to organise an event there. If you have a venue which in your opinion could be used during our 2016 festival, please let us know. We are keen on helping our event organisers in expanding to new places in town so all your input will be greatly appreciated.
October was a month of planning, process building and research for our team. We have found the right tools for the 2016 events and organised an updated road map of our work. We would love to share it with you to get you involved too! It’s a long infographic so please check it out at the end of this blog post or here, on our Facebook fan page. Thank you!
Meetings with other event organisers and with local schools
We would like to say a big thank you to the following organisations for taking time to meet us: Vale & Downland Museum, Shush the Entertainment Venue, Wantage Youth Council, King Alfred’s Academy and Charlton Primary School. We have many more meetings scheduled and we will always find time for you. Please get in touch if you want to discuss the 2016 Festival with us or would like to get involved.
We want to meet and interview YOU! We can also feature your venue!
We have mentioned this in our open meetings – we are dedicating a lot of time to meet all past event organisers, festival participants and fans. We have already met a few Festival friends and we will publish interviews on our blog shortly. In the meantime we would love to plan new chats and interviews so please get in touch if you want to meet informally or if you want us to feature you on our website.
Can you help?
As we are researching the past of our Festival we are trying to reconstruct all past programmes, but we have no records from 1999 and 2000. Please, please, please let us know if you happen to have a copy of our Programme from those years! Thank you!
