The festival is principally aimed at the residents of the Parish but we are aware that there will be people from outside the parish who will want to take part. We aim to encourage the following to take part, all the four Primary Schools in the parish, Clubs, organisations and businesses as well, of course, as individuals, A great deal of word has already been done and the Festival has received publicity in the Parish Newsletters and Residents Association magazines. Further publicity will start in earnest from now on and we will be asking for those interested in entering and people willing to help over the weekend.
The benifits for the schools are as those outlined above plus it will bring the talent of the pupils to notice and where the children are hopefully their parents and other relative will also be. We would like the children to be as adventurous and creative as possible in whether it's Art, Dance, Drama or music.
