Think big and little to play part in festival
THE Town Gardens Little Big Festival will be launched tomorrow.
Bands, workshops and activities for the festival, which runs from the beginning of April until the end of September, are currently being booked.
Organisers are especially looking for activities for young children such as dance workshops, art and crafts and storytelling. Also martial arts, yoga, running, dance, gardening tips, flower arranging, chess and in fact anything that you think could be enjoyed by all ages is welcome.
A spokesperson for the event said: “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.”
There is no charge 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 Council’s Parks Department and Carol Watts who runs the Town Gardens Café.
