We are delighted to announce that once again we have managed to secure the funding allowing us to continue our charging model for the festival, asking for donations rather than formally ticketing the event.
The funding, which has come from a variety of sources including, The Big Lottery Fund, Derbyshire County Council, and commercial sponsorship along side funds secured from last years festival, mean that the budget for Bankswood 16 will again be up on last year.
Families will be at the core of the Festival
Earlier in the year, we carried out some research into what people want from the Festival, and what has become clear is that Families need to be at the centre.
In 2015, we focused on the Music, and all the feedback we received suggested that that paid dividends. In 2016 the focus will be developing the Family aspects of the festival.
We are also keen to allow people to get involved with the running of the festival, and to gain experience through the event. Anyone interested in volunteering at the festival, can find out more on The Bankswood Festival Website
