St Neots Festival is back, bigger and better! Let's keep it fun, green and free for everyone.

St Neots Festival is back, bigger and better!

Four stages full of live music

Seven zones (Youth, Kids, Theatre, Community, Neotists, Articipate and Wellbeing)

Over 200 different performances, workshops and stalls across two packed days.

ALL FREE FOR EVERYONE.

And we need your help to keep it that way.

What will we use the funds for?

We are hugely grateful to all our funders and sponsors in helping us raise the money to put on this show. Our whole team are volunteers, doing this for free in our spare time, led by the not-for-profit Neotists CIC (Community Interest Company).

But there's a lot of financial risk in festivals. Over 40 regular festivals have cancelled this year due to rising costs (BBC News).

Even before we spend a penny on artists and performers, we need to cover the increasing costs of:

  • Stages and marquee hire
  • Power (no fossil fuels - all batteries, mains power and biodiesel!)
  • Sound and lighting
  • Toilets, fencing, site dressing and furniture
  • Security and First Aid staff
  • Insurance, licences and waste management...

So please help us reach our target and we can keep the flame alive for the future of St Neots Festival. Every penny counts.

Why is it important?

Festivals are special – they bring people together as a community to share in something joyful and celebratory. At a time when a cost of living crisis is putting socialising and entertainment out of reach, it’s more important than ever to have free, high quality events locally.

So give what you can, and join us on Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 July 2024, when Priory Park in St Neots will once again be transformed.

Who are we?

St Neots Festival is being delivered by a group of volunteers brought together through Neotists (a not-for-profit Community Interest Company), with support from St Neots Town Council, Huntingdonshire District Council and a wide range of incredible local businesses and community organisations.
