Organisers of the first ever Barton Hill Festival are looking for more volunteers for the event, which takes place at the end of this month.
The free festival, which celebrates the diversity of the many nationalities and communities in the area, will take place on Sunday 29th October.
The programme includes theatre, food, craft and much more, creating a variety of fun and interesting volunteer opportunities. All those who volunteer will work on a shift pattern so they and their families can enjoy the event. Training will be given in advance.
If you want to get involved there is a training session on Wednesday October 18th at 6.30pm at the Barton Hill Settlement. You can also e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Ali Sully on 0117 3773166.
Part of the event will be a ‘Bake for Barton Hill’ cake stall and locals are being urged to bring along a cake that means something to them. With 70 different nationalities in Barton Hill organisers want this part of the festival to celebrate cuisine from across the world. So bring along a cake that’s made to a traditional family recipe or has a particular significance for you.
All cakes should be taken to the Settlement Cafe on October 28th or 29th. All proceeds from their sales will go towards the Barton Hill Festival Fund to support future events in the area.
