Our mission will alway be to build cultural bridges with the rest of Europe. We want to make the summer of 2023 a time to celebrate what brings us together as a continent. We share so much - in our history, cultures, values, food and drink, artistic expression - and have so much to learn from each other as well.
Our vision is to create a strong, positive and hopeful narrative about Europe and our place within it, through a wide variety of events and special occasions across the UK that everyone can enjoy.
Our video shows the diversity of our events that took place in the wonderful Festival of Europe 2022.
For our Festival 2023, we have many events lined up already, working with a range of different partners including our new Patron, Madeleina Kay. Here's a video of Madeleina championing our festival: https://youtu.be/AgnBXJghpEA
In order to make the festival a success we need your help.
We need to raise funds to help us grow our online presence, improve our infrastructure and develop our website. We have an ambitious target so we can make sure the Festival's online profile is the best it can be, so as to enlarge our community of supporters and attract funding .
We plan to transform our current website into an online showcase for the Festival, its events and all the partners who will help bring the dream to life.
In 2023, as our Festival builds on our fantastic debut year in 2022, we need to enlarge our profile and to build our community. By showing your support now, you'll also be the first to hear about our exciting plans and more opportunities to get involved in the coming months.
