The World on Your Doorstep festival is a new venture in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire. It is a small but perfectly formed 2 day open-air festival held in the local park. 2008 is the festival's second year, 2007 having been a great success, despite the appalling weather!
Festival headquarters is the famous Hebden Bridge Trades Club 'the best little music venue in the North' (don't know who said that but it's true)!
The aim of the festival is to celebrate the diverse cultures of the north of England through music, dance and international cuisine. It's a world music festival, basically.
We had a pretty good attendance by traders last year, but these things build up over time. We have a fair few contacts to be going on with but would really like more diversity and some more interesting and unusual stalls! We are trying to create a world marketplace effect, but without being overwhelmed with the usual ethnic tat.
We have an anticipated audience of 5000 and hiring a pitch is cheap as it is a small but cozy event! The price for caterer's for 2 days is £150 to £250, depending on stall size, and other stalls are a bargain at £50 to £150.
The World on Your Doorstep' 2008 takes place on Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th July.
