We are currently booking bands, workshops, and activities for the 2014 Little Big Festival which runs in the Town Gardens from the beginning of April until the end of September.
Call for Visual Artists
This year’s fantastic ‘Town Gardens’ Little Big Festival’ launch event is on Sunday 27 April.
Artists are welcome to come, exhibit and sell their visual art work during this celebration time. Artists will need to bring a table or stands (and gazebo, depending on weather) to exhibit their own work.
The art work can be based on any subject but must be suitable for viewing by the general public.
Artists will need to begin setting up by 2pm and be ready for the public at 2.30pm. There will be entertainment on the bandstand from 3pm.
Please get in touch if you would like to be a part of this magnificent opportunity. Please spread the word with those not on Facebook. Please message Town Gardens Little Big Festival or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Activities for young and old
We are especially looking for activities for young children i.e dance workshops, art and crafts and storytelling. Also marshal arts, yoga, running, dance, gardening tips, flower arranging, chess and in fact anything considered that you feel would be enjoyed by all, from small children through to the elderly.
The way it works is that you organise your event, charge a nominal fee if appropriate, target your audience and we will put your listing on the Little Big Festival Facebook page and make you an administrator so that you can let people know if the event has to be cancelled due to bad weather.
We will also include your event in our listings which will be printed and delivered to homes in Old Town and promote through various media outlets such as radio, local newspapers and web based pages.
In return all we ask is that you add the Little Big Festival logo to all your promotional material thus creating an umbrella for the various activities. This means that costs for the festival in terms of actual money and man power are kept to the minimum which in the current climate is the only way that we can deliver an exciting programme.
There is no charge from us to take part. Bands are asked to play free of charge and are welcome to put out a hat for a collection.
The Little Big Festival is a partnership between Commonweal School, A Performing Arts Academy, Martin Hambidge from Swindon Borough Council’s Parks Department and Carol Watts who runs the Town Gardens Café.
If you would like to take part please email email@example.com in the first instance or tel 01793 427860.
