Keynsham’s Music Festival week and the Sunday line up, includes some of the best performers in the region and beyond: delicious food, real ales, stalls and creative activities for all to enjoy.
With the support of our main providers, Keynsham Town Council and B&NES Arts Development, our sponsors and a host of community groups and partnerships we really are talking about a Festival Week.
Keep in touch and up to date with what’s going on through this website and our Face Book and Twitter pages, and use them to make your own contributions and suggestions. This truly community Festival happens with public support and the tireless effort of supporters and volunteers and your donations: we ask for just £2 per person on the Big Day or in advance – in the buckets! And this year you can collect a coveted Festival wrist band too!
Over 17000 people attended all festival events in 2013, and that the festival was made possible by just 67 volunteer helpers who between them put in over 400 hours work? We always need more! Watch the panel on the left for an overview of the coming festival week and for contact details for your offers of help, contributions, requests and queries.
The Keynsham Music Festival seeks, and works hard, to be totally Fairtrade and sustainable.
Have a wonderful Festival Week in 2014!
