Because we are currently looking for new committee members to help run Larkhall Festival 2014 we thought it might be useful to let you know some of the things you could do as a committee member.
Programme planning (e.g. deciding what events and activities will make up next year’s festival, booking and timetabling everything so it all works together over the 3 days)
Event management (e.g. liaising with venues and activity organisers, liaising with the council and other bodies, dealing with licenses, co-ordinating volunteers)
Publicity (e.g. designing posters, writing regular emails to members, up-dating Facebook and Twitter, writing articles and liaising with the local media)
Producing the festival programme (e.g. writing copy, design and layout)
Fundraising (e.g. organising fundraising events and activities, getting sponsorship from local businesses)
Technical and resources (e.g. planning what equipment and resources we need, getting hold of stuff and making sure we have people who can work things)
We do it as a team
Everyone does what they can
If you would like to join our wonderful committee let us know
At the AGM on November 7th (see below) we will be electing the committee for Larkhall Festival 2014. In the 5 years of the festival so far we have been fortunate to have had new committee members coming on board each year to keep the group fresh and dynamic. This is one reason why the festival has gone from strength to strength.
We are looking for new people to join the committee for Larkhall Festival 2014.
If you are interested please don’t wait until the AGM to talk to us. Get in touch now and we can arrange for you to meet up with some of the existing committee members over a coffee (or something stronger) so you can find out what’s involved.
This is your opportunity to get involved in the best community festival in Bath!!
It’s that time again!!
