Join in the Gala Fest fun!
Come to an Event
The easiest way to join in the fun over the Gala Fest weekend is to come to one of the many events happening over the weekend - many of which are free to attend.
From live music and acts to watch, a sporty challenge to have a go at, or crafts and shopping opportunities, we are sure there is something for everyone to enjoy.
Join the Parade
The Gala Fest parade is a traditional part of the weekend, and we want to make the it as big, bright and colourful as possible following the theme of "Magic & Mystery".
It can be as simple as walking along in fancy dress. You can come along and join in with everyone else, or get your family, friends or your company to come along as well.
Enter the Team Duathlon
The Team Duathlon is a relay style event consisting of a 2k run, 16k bike and 5k run.
It is a fun and friendly race open to ages 10+ and all abilities in teams of three people who take on one secion each.
Work towards a fitness goal or try and achieve a personal best time with your team.
Decorate your shop
To brighten up the town, businesses with shop windows are encouraged to dress up or decorate their window in the theme of the weekend for visitors to the town to enjoy. For 2021 the theme for the weekend is 'Magic & Mystery'.
Every shop with a decorated window will be entered into “The Best Dressed Window” competition with prizes for the top 3 as chosen by the Gala Fest Princesses.
For more details about dressing up your window contact Tim on 07876654902 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Enter the Grand Draw
The Grand Draw is a traditional part of the Gala Fest weekend. By buying one or more draw tickets you will be entered into the draw which takes place on Gala Fest Monday.
Tickets cost just £1.00 each and are available from various locations around the town in the build up the event, plus at events across the weekend.
Become a sponsor
Gala Fest is only able to go ahead because of the kind sponsorship of local businesses, and the more money that is donated allows for a bigger and better weekend for everyone.
In return for sponsorship the Gala Fest can promote your company with social media mentions and links, your logo appearing on this website and on promotional material for the event.
