Don’t forget: we are working on the printed programme now but you can still register events with us and use our website and social channels for promotion.

We are looking for volunteers to help us during the Festival

As you might know, WSF Committee consists of only volunteers so we would really really need your help during our summer events. You can get involved by donating: your time in the run-up to the Festival preparations and during the Festival events – even if you just have an hour, you can help; your expertise – we need help in many areas of our preparatory work (distributing programmes, online coverage, ticket sales) and we also need advice and new ideas.
What’s in it for you?
– Feel-good by supporting your local community.
– Acquire new skills – we have a good team of professionals specialising in fundraising, community work, legal, digital tools, online marketing, photography and much more.
-Do something else, something new.
-Socialise, have fun, meet new friends, particularly if you are new to Wantage and the area.
It really does not matter how much time you can offer us – we appreciate all support.

For event organisers – Update your event information

We are currently finalising the design of our printed programme so it’s time for you to check all the details of your registered event on our website, send us a featured image and let us know if you want your contact details to be featured too.

We have explain in our ‘Event Organiser’s Guide’ that we aim to help only with online tickets sales – please check and confirm if you need our support with ticketing.

Please remember that we will be able to add more details to your event later but we would also like to start promoting your events – so don’t wait too long!

We will be in touch over email with all organisers and we will invite your all to a briefing meeting planned for the second half of May 2016.
