Entry criteria
Our support

Registration step by step... 

1 - Connect with us

Ask for a login to join the community and gain access to the Organiser area - this is where you'll find the registration form and resources.

Nb. Some areas have a local coordinator who promotes, and sometimes registers events - do check if you have one nearby first!

2 - Submit your details

Submit your event details using our online registration form in your Organiser area.

Event registration is open: early March - early August.

3 - Check your listings

Most events need to be reviewed by the team before being fully registered, if there's a query we'll be in touch, otherwise you will get an email to notify you that it has been approved for publication. This might take a few weeks as we're a small team, please bear with us! 

Listings go live on the website from June -  check your entry is correct and present.

4 - Promote your event

Use our online templates & resources to promote your event locally and beyond, linking in to the national festival.

5 - Keep us posted

Let us know if anything needs changing in the run up to the event. Double check your risk assessment measures. Then have a wonderful event and tell us all about it afterwards!
