It’s almost Festival Time!

Set up on the village green begins bright and early on Wednesday morning, 19th June, with the arrival of the main marquee and essential equipment. The committee and volunteers will be working hard during two days to get everything ready for opening to the public on Friday 21st. We aim to keep disruption to local residents to a minimum, but please contact the Festival help line on 07565 263722 if there is a problem.
Everyone in the village should have received their Festival programme by now. If you have not, please email with your name and address, and we will get a copy to you as soon as possible. We hope you enjoy reading your programme and find much in there to interest you.

We need hardly remind you that parking is not always easy in Bishopsteignton. For the duration of the Festival, Cockhaven Close and Horns Park will be resident-only parking, drop off/collection for pre-school and school where necessary, and loading and unloading as appropriate. Anyone with mobility problems may be dropped off at the village green, but we would ask that all vehicles are then parked elsewhere.
It is imperative that local roads are not blocked so that residents and emergency vehicles can have access at all times. Thank you for your co-operation in this matter.
We are running a free bus service again this year. Please think about leaving your car at home and taking advantage of this where possible. You will find details of the bus service on page 17 of your programme.

We have a wonderful team of volunteers without whom the Festival would not be possible, but we still have a few times when an extra pair of hands would be very useful. If you can spare just an hour or two to help out, please get in touch via the above email address with your name and telephone number. Thank you!
