Fulbourn Winter Festival – Latest Info

Planning for the Winter Festival is well under way!

All our planning teams have been working hard to prepare for the Festival. More volunteers are always welcome to share the big task of being ready for this exciting festival on the 28th of November – as well as preparing for a ‘Plan B’ if regulations change, or Plan C if we have to reschedule for some time in 2021. We have the help of a qualified volunteer to ensure we adhere to all Covid guidelines, to keep us safe.

THE LANTERN WALK

We are planning a Lantern Walk around several streets in the village, along a specified route finishing in Manor Walk – which we are hoping to close to traffic from 2pm to 7pm. Discussions are well under way with Cambridgeshire County Council Highways Dept, with support from both the Fulbourn Parish Council and our SCDC District Councellor representative.

There will be a video produced soon which will be published via this webpage, that’ll explain how you or your children can make decorative lanterns and masks.

If you want to participate in the Lantern Walk you need to REGISTER (for up to 6 people in a group) via fulbournarts@gmail.com BEFORE 20th Nov. We’ll get back to you with details about the timing and the route in due course.

Currently we need …….

  • Volunteer Festival MARSHALLS (STEWARDS)!
  • Marshalls will help keep social distancing on the Lantern Walk, at the Music and Stallholder events, and the indoor event at the Townley Hall.
  • You’ll be given a high viz vest and guidance on your role.
  • Contact fulbournarts@gmail.com if you can help and would like to volunteer as a Marshall.

LIGHTING UP FULBOURN

We want as many people as possible to decorate their windows and gardens, to make a ‘Lighting Fulbourn Walking Tour’. We have a volunteer to manage that and make up the map for the tour. If you want your house / garden on the map please contact sesmason@hotmail.com BEFORE 20th Nov.

MUSIC AND PERFORMANCE

We now have more than 10 different performers volunteering to take part. They range from a choral group, through various types of singers, jazz musicians and bands. More volunteer musicians are always welcome. Please contact herrington.paul@gmail.com if you’re interested in performing at the Festival BEFORE 20th Nov.

Performances will be in Manor Walk and the High Street which will be festively lit. Depending on the location for the Art Exhibition there are intended to be some indoor performances there as well.

FOOD AND DRINK / CRAFT STALLS

A number of people have already approached us to run their stalls to provide a wide range of home produced food and drinks. If you’re interested in joining them with your own stall, please contact: jemma.hoare13@gmail.com BEFORE 20th Nov.

We still need more Craft Stall participants. We have a few but would very much like more to join them. If you know of anyone who might be intersted please get in touch via fulbournarts@gmail.com BEFORE 20th Nov. It only costs a £5 donation to Fulbourn Arts to participate and set up your own stall on Manor Walk or nearby.

ART AND CRAFTS IN LOCKDOWN

There have been a good number of submissions for the Art & Crafts exhibition so far. More submissions are always welcome but please contact the organiser deanna@deanna-tyson.com BEFORE 13th Nov if you are interested so that the final selection of works can be chosen.

More information about the venue for the exhibition will follow in due course.

WRITING AND LITERARY

We are planning on compiling a book of ‘writing during lockdown’ . You are invited to submit your stories, letters, poems, songs, emails, eulogies, raps, sermons, diaries, articles – in fact anything you wrote during lockdown.

To submit something you’ve written please contact fulbournarts@gmail.com by the beginning of December 2020.
