Open Meeting to discuss Bromsgrove Festival 2015

A MEETING to discuss next year’s Bromsgrove Festival will be held in Room 6 of the town’s Methodist Centre.

The event, organised by the Bromsgrove Festival Council, will take place at 7.30pm on Wednesday (October 22).

Bob Bignell, the Bromsgrove Festival’s deputy chair, said: “It is hoped that new thoughts and ideas will be offered for consideration at this meeting.

“In particular the Festival Council would particularly welcome ideas from young people and promoters of genres which were not included in the 2014 programme.”

He added the post-festival questionnaire had been completed by the majority of event organisers and suggestions have been made for future festivals.

And, he said, although the 2014 Bromsgrove Festival was hailed a success by organisers, audiences and the general public, the festival council was mindful that there was always room for improvement.

Any organisers who want to have their event included on the caledar should email info [at] bromsgrovefestival [dot] co [dot] uk with the dates and brief details of the event.

Bromsgrove Festival 2015 already in the planning stage

Having received feedback from many of the organisers of events in this year's Festival, and with the sound of success still ringing in their ears, and those of the event organisers, the Bromsgrove Festival committee are already planning next year's event and, whereas there may be subtle changes, the main aim is still to demonstrate the wealth of talent in all genres that exists within the Bromsgrove area. This does not mean, of course, that national and international artists will not also feature.

This year's Festival represented a turning point and, with a new benchmark from which to work, the Festival Committee, as well as the event organisers are looking to make 2015 efven better.

Event organisers are urged to apply now to have their dates for events, even though details may not be finalised, included in the programme, and ultimately the Festival Brochure, by submitting them to info [at] bromsgrovefestival [dot] co [dot] uk. it is hoped that by reference to the web site programme that some of the date duplication experienced at this year's Festival can be avoided.

It is anticipated that the on going 2015 programme will commence  publication on the web site,www.bromsgrovefestival.co.uk, within the next couple of weeks
