We're back for 2019! And more determined than ever!
With the 'original' Gosport Waterfront Community Festival, you can expect a return to what you have always experienced in the past, namely, TOP class main acts and the best of the local area music scene in prime position at WALPOLE PARK, at a minimal fee
The purpose of the festival company and the local organising team, which includes a number of dedicated volunteers that have been involved with the festival since it's inception over 15 years ago, is once again, to put on a fantastic event for the entire Gosport and surrounding areas community, raising money so that we can give more support to the local arts community, All groups will be considered within the local community
We always allow other charity organisations to set up shop on site. As you will note , we made a loss this year, but we are heading in the right direction as far as footfall is concerned.
We will only charging a maximum £10 per person, that will pay for the whole weekend. The rest will hopefully stay with us for the fund builder for a property that will allow the Arts to use, young musicians will be able to practice without having to pay around £20 per hour to do so.
We want to be able to supply PA equipment and amplification to.
We also, once registered, will advertise our skills in supplying event management etc for other events, raising money for our goal.
Any group within our area that need help the arts, they will be able to come to us for support, re rehursals , background support, anything really to do with the arts, music drama and dance.
The family-friendly festival ethos remains intact, one which has attracted over 25,000 people of all ages in previous years, to enjoy the music and wide range of entertainment on site, with under 12s free entry made available.
A great selection of market stalls and traders to complement the event, with excellent food vendors and a well-stocked beer tent to keep all fed and watered throughout the weekend.
Our endeavour is to embrace the values of the Family, an event that will bring them all together in one fun friendly place in the town for all generations and generations to come to embrace. We would like the opportunity to embrace, strengthen, and unite the local community by celebrating and sharing the essence of the Gosport Waterfront Community Festival.
Corporate sponsorship with VIP packages is available to help support the event.
