As the saying goes ‘let the show go on’, so on goes Sedgefield Slow Festival 2014… the Festival IS happening indeed! And it’s set to be a special one as the Festival celebrates YEAR 5 this year! So be sure to save the dates – set for Easter weekend, Fri 18th-Sun 20th April.
Aside from all the good old-fashioned fun that has come to be the essence of the Festival, the program will again include some of your favourite events, this time bringing in some new ones too. From sporty challenges to beach-based fun, from fashion events to fun and games for all the family. All orchestrated from the hub of the festival, which will again centre on the Village Green, this 3-day event will finish up with the Grand Parade through town and lead us all down to the Green to finish.
“The Slow Festival committee is the strongest and biggest we’ve had yet – 16 members strong,” said Amanda Dixon. “The positive energy, ideas and excitement at getting things organized has been tangible in every meeting we’ve had so far. It’s just fantastic! It’s such a privilege to have such a great team for Slow Fest 2014.”
The committee has been at work for a good number of months already and the organizers of the various core events are all busy confirming the details on their events for 2014’s program.
Updates to the Slow Festival website and Facebook page will take place over the next few weeks so keep an eye on these for updates on events for 2014 and any other exciting snippets of news. In the meantime, save the dates in your diary, pass the word around and get your WHOLE family and ALL your friends to be HERE for Slow Festival 2014! It’s going to be a whole lot of good old fashioned family fun…just the way it used to be!
Help in various ways is needed – ideas, suggestions, add your event to the program, sponsor an event, sponsor prizes, offer your help over the days of the festival- please contact the organiser or any of the committee members. We’d love to hear from you!
