The Larkhall Festival is only possible because members of our community give their time generously to help us put on a wide range of events over the weekend.
We are holding a meeting for potential volunteers at the Bladuds Head 7.30 pm – 9 pm on 10th April, please come along and find out more, or just have a drink with the Festival Committee. If you would like to help please email email@example.com or leave a message on our Facebook page.
The full printed programme for this year’s festival will be available for you to pick up from local shops from mid-April 2017.
In the meantime, a preview of some of what will be on offer in this year’s festival can be found in the ‘Day by Day guide 2017‘ section of this website.
Do you have a garden you are proud of and would like others to see? Larkhall Festival are looking for new gardens for the Garden Trail, which takes place on Bank Holiday Monday 1st May. Contact Jonathan Holt via firstname.lastname@example.org. He’ll be delighted to hear from you.
Tickets for the fish and chip quiz on Saturday 11th February have sold out! We have the names of everyone who brought a ticket online (or via Cloud 9) and we’ll tick you off the list when you arrive at New Oriel Hall.
As a bonus Localgiving have match funded the first 21 donations made via our site which adds an extra £250 to this years Festival fund.
The bar will be open from 7 pm and we look forward to seeing you there for what should be a great evening.
The Larkhall Festival Soapbox Derby is an open-to-all race for teams made up of a mixture of adults and children. Enter homemade carts of your own design to stake your place on the winner’s podium! We actively promote creative and crazy designs for all carts and there will be a prize for the best cart, but don’t worry if you’re not feeling too creative, carts can be anything from an old painted wheelbarrow to a more elaborate design of your choice.
All carts entered into the race must be entirely home-made and powered completely by hand or foot – unassisted by motors. Each cart should have a minimum crew of one child.
The carts will gather at the front of the Bladud’s head from 13:00 and the race, to the chequered flag at the Larkhall Inn will start at 14:00
So come on ladies, gentlemen and children of Larkhall, get building and lets have some fun!!
Our themed fundraising quiz is taking place on Saturday 11th February 2017 at New Oriel Hall. As well as entry into the quiz you get a fish and chip supper plus there will be a cash bar.
To secure your place please make a £12 donation to the festival fund via our new Localgiving page. For tax reasons please do not Gift Aid this particular donation.
When making the donation via Localgiving there will be a ‘message’ box where you should write your full name with the word ‘quiz’ next to it. Write ‘VG’ if you’d like to order the vegetarian option rather than fish.
