How to help in the Festival fortnight

Front of house volunteers
We should be really grateful for your help in bringing the Bedford Park Festival back to life! We need help on the door with checking off names for the Test and Trace system and help with seating the audiences in line with covid security guidelines. If you would like to volunteer please sign up here on our web-based system. Most events are about an hour in length.

The times given on the sign-up sheet for volunteers to arrive, not the start time of the events. if you have any queries or difficulty in signing up, please contact Alison Baker a.m.baker@blueyonder.co.uk.  

Donate goods and prizes and help on Festival Fete stalls on Saturday January 26th. We need bottles for the bottle tombola, books, bric a brac, and Hats, scarves and bags. All to be delivered to the Parish Office from Monday June 14th.

Sponsorship: We are seeking helpers to work with Torin Douglas, liaising with local businesses to make the most of their promotional activities during the Festival. Please contact Nicola Chater: nicola@global-marketing-solutions.com.

Fundraising: can you donate, sponsor or give prizes?

We still want to raise money for our charities, including St Michael & All Angels, which organises the Festival - but we know local businesses are affected as much by the COVID-19 situation as anyone else. If you run a business, we can help you keep your name in the public eye, even if your door is closed. To find out how your firm can be involved as a sponsor, or by donating goods or services, or how we can promote each other on social media, click here: Commercial opportunities or contact Torin Douglas at torindouglas@aol.com.
