New Mills Festival Fringe Programme 14th – 30th September 2018

Got an event for us?

Work has begun on the cultural extravaganza that will be New Mills Festival 2018.

This year's theme is "Small is Beautiful!" (but you don’t have to go with the theme, it is just a suggestion to help with inspiration!)

We will be running the 2018 festival under the banner of ‘New Mills Festival Fringe’ as this year we are not running the lantern procession, street party or art trail. This is due to finance and a lack of volunteers. It was obviously a difficult decision to make but we hope to return with the full programme in 2019. If you are interested in volunteering, please see our website for details.

Our Festival Fringe year will still be packed full (with your help!) of community events, screenings, gigs, talks and art, for a non-stop two weeks of activity. We are looking forward to another highly successful Festival programme that highlights the extraordinary community spirit of New Mills.

If you're thinking of hosting an event, or if you want an event included in this year's programme, please reply to with your idea so far, and a preferred date. I will send you a link to access our online form which we will be using to collect the relevant information about events, but I will also be available via email to respond to any questions you may have.

There are already ideas forming for events over some of the weekend dates, so may I mention that we will especially welcome any events that can be held on weekday nights, in order that we can have a well-balanced festival programme.

We hope you will want to join in our programme for this year, and look forward to hearing from you.
