We had a great AGM on 25th September with 7 new people joining the festival committee and some really exciting ideas for next year’s festival.
On 8th October we are having an Open Meeting for anyone who is interested in organising something or contributing in any way to Larkhall Festival 2015.

On the evening of Saturday 3rd May we will be holding an auction in the New Oriel Hall.
This will take place during an interval in the Ceilidh so there will be the chance to catch your breath and purchase one of the following great lots.
1. Oil painting of Larkhall by award winning local artist Simon Hodges
2. Unique hand crafted glass dish by Gill Silversides
3. Commission for a drawing of your cat or dog by Kate Wilkey
4. Gourmet meal for 6 prepared in your own home by talented local chef Kingsley Pillinger (you supply the ingredients, he supplies the cooking skills)
The festival is always looking for volunteers. For example, we need help with stewarding and running stalls and activities on the ‘Village Green’ on Sunday 4th May. For details see the programme for Sunday
We are holding a volunteers meeting 8pm on Friday 25th April 2014 in the Rose & Crown.
If you want to know more about volunteering at the festival email firstname.lastname@example.org
We still have spaces left for the Larkhall Festival Craft Fare which takes places in the New Oriel Hall on Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th May.
The New Oriel Hall is the focal point of the Festival, the venue for an art exhibition, children’s craft workshops and a cafe, attracting many visitors over the Festival weekend.
Tables are £15 per day. To book your table email festival@larkhall-
We have also created events for various festival activities on our Facebook page
There are also articles about the festival in the latest edition of The Larkhall News.
Because we are currently looking for new committee members to help run Larkhall Festival 2014 we thought it might be useful to let you know some of the things you could do as a committee member.
Programme planning (e.g. deciding what events and activities will make up next year’s festival, booking and timetabling everything so it all works together over the 3 days)
Event management (e.g. liaising with venues and activity organisers, liaising with the council and other bodies, dealing with licenses, co-ordinating volunteers)
Publicity (e.g. designing posters, writing regular emails to members, up-dating Facebook and Twitter, writing articles and liaising with the local media)
Producing the festival programme (e.g. writing copy, design and layout)
Fundraising (e.g. organising fundraising events and activities, getting sponsorship from local businesses)
Technical and resources (e.g. planning what equipment and resources we need, getting hold of stuff and making sure we have people who can work things)
We do it as a team
Everyone does what they can
If you would like to join our wonderful committee let us know
At the AGM on November 7th (see below) we will be electing the committee for Larkhall Festival 2014. In the 5 years of the festival so far we have been fortunate to have had new committee members coming on board each year to keep the group fresh and dynamic. This is one reason why the festival has gone from strength to strength.
We are looking for new people to join the committee for Larkhall Festival 2014.
If you are interested please don’t wait until the AGM to talk to us. Get in touch now and we can arrange for you to meet up with some of the existing committee members over a coffee (or something stronger) so you can find out what’s involved.
This is your opportunity to get involved in the best community festival in Bath!!
It’s that time again!!
Planning for the next Larkhall Festival starts with the Annual General Meeting which this year takes place on:
Thursday 7th November
Larkhall Liberal Club
7.30 refreshments, 8pm meeting
Everyone with an interest in Larkhall Festival is invited. Please put this date in your diary now and share it with your friends and neighbours!!
