Festival 2017

The Broomhill Festival in 2017 was very different from previous festivals. The new committee formed early in 2017 and the Festival was run by individual groups raising funds for themselves or for their nominated charities. The Festival funds covered insurance, general publicity – brochures, posters, website etc. Each of the individual groups may then have provided their own targeted publicity; they organised and funded their own events. Any profits after expenses were given to their nominated charities, after a 10% levy was paid to the Broomhill Festival to help to cover the costs already paid for by the Festival funds.

The totals raised for the charities/groups are given below. In most cases, the groups organised more than one event. This shows the summary that was provided to the Festival committee.

The Festival expenditure exceeded income for 2017 by £566.55, which is something we need to address for the 2018 Festival!

The 2018 Festival will take place from 16th to 24th June and will be run along similar lines.
