Firstly thank you to everyone who supported the 2017 festival. In terms of numbers and revenue, this was our most successful year yet. It was lovely to see so many people of all ages enjoying the day. Thank you too for all of the positive feedback, it really makes it worthwhile.
The 2018 Festival will be on Saturday 16th June, we are still finalising the line up but as a teaser we do know that ‘Eat the Rich’ will be making a return visit! One of our main aims is to support the community and as in previous years we encourage local groups and charities to raise money on the day by offering space for stalls and activities for no charge. It is always nice to hear how much these good causes make and how much they enjoy the festival. If you would like a stall or have an idea for an activity for 2018’s festival, please contact Caroline Taylor on 01363 82950.
Finally, sadly after much deliberation the Committee has decided to make 2018 the last Festival for the foreseeable future. It wasn’t an easy decision; we know how much the event means to many people. However, since 2009, the Festival has grown each year and is now beyond what our small group of volunteers can manage. This is not the end of the Heart Of Devon; we will be able to concentrate all our efforts on the smaller events we organise during the year. We look forward to seeing you at one of our events!
