Stone Festival Focus


A warm and festive welcome to everyone on this our first Festival Focus. Yes June 2015 certainly seems a long way away, however as we all know, time marches on with gusto and with this in mind, the Festival Committee wanted to warm everyone in Stone up over the coming months with news about what is coming and what will make 2015 an even bigger and better festival for us all.

A new look, bigger and better than ever before and an exciting new structure to Party in the Park will ensure to have our town really buzzing come June next year.

Before news about 2015, a little on 2014 and where all of the monies raised are going to; well the festival is all about raising money for the good causes of our town after all! Some 21 charities and good causes are benefiting from over £6000 raised in 2014 and over the coming months you will see some examples of what your money has meant to the local beneficiaries and our town in general.

So to 2015 – Stone needs you! Yes whether you are young or old, it’s your time to participate and share in the fun and excitement in 2015. We want to have a record breaking number of floats in 2015 and that means getting more people and organisations involved. So regardless of if there are 6 of you or 46, why not get together now and start planning what you could do – it is always wonderful to see a long procession and 2014 was great but can we make 2015 even better?

Secondly we would like to call upon all local businesses to see if you are interested in sponsoring any element of the Festival? It’s a great way of getting your business noticed whilst helping us to make it a great event for everyone concerned.

So on behalf of the Festival Committee we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and look forward to hearing back from you whether it’s an enquiry to join in the Carnival parade or if your business would like to sponsor an element of the Festival.
