Lymm Festival - Countdown .. !
Diary ~ May 2013
Here we are in mid May and the Festival is getting nearer. Here’s hoping we are getting rid of all the rain now and we have great weather in June as we have a lot going on outdoors – transport day, trail races, walks, exhibitions, gardens and the fabulous Foodfest to name just a few.
We also have a fantastic selection of indoor events arranged. Have a look at the drop down menus at the top of the page and start ordering, as tickets are now available. On-line ordering is up and running and already the tickets are starting to fly out. Look out for the programmes which will be available in the shops any time now and will also be dropping through your letter boxes soon, if they have not done so already.
Something for everyone : You will be delighted with what is happening this year – there is a diverse and exciting selection of events that are displayed on this website as well as in the programme . Have a look at our Preview Page;
There are things you can get involved in NOW - Art Workshops, The Scarecrow Trail - with a ‘Circus’ theme this year, so Roll Up, Roll Up, let’s do even better than last year and get more Scarecrows around Lymm this Summer. They are tremendous fun for all the family, easy to make, very popular and attract visitors from all around the area. Entry forms are starting to come in so get yours NOW (on this website or from Harrison’s, Rushgreen Services or The Coffee House) ………. and why not sign up your whole family for the Trail Races as well.
ARTISTS …. Art boards were given out on Saturday, 18th May in the Village Hall Annexe between 1.30 and 3.30pm for those who had applied to help create another mammoth BIG PICTURE! These should be completed and delivered to the Box Office at Lymm Village Hall on 1st, 8th, 15th or 17th June (at the latest). However, should you still wish to join in, you are not too late, we have a couple of places still available so download a Big Picture ENTRY FORM 2013 and contact Jackie Marshall on email firstname.lastname@example.org But hurry as there are only one or two left. For more details, see “Special Events” at the top of this page.

By the way there is no magic wand behind this festival. Hundreds , no thousands of hours of work are done by volunteers and our festival director. We need more help. We really do. Any time you can give before, during and after the festival (we start planning for 2014 this September) would be most welcome. Email email@example.com We are sure to have jobs that you will enjoy and will suit your skills and availability.
Catch the flavour!
