Thank you to our magnificent supporters
We are extremely grateful to Ulverston Town Council for their ongoing support, and to CGP and Cumbria County Council for their generous donations towards the 2021 festival. As the event continues to grow, we would really love to work with one more major partner or sponsor. It this idea floats your boat, please get in touch with us via the contact form. Thank you.
What happens if it rains?
We’re keeping our fingers and toes crossed for dry weather. If it’s wet, the event will still go ahead, as long as we can ensure that all the participants and visitors are safe. Many of the market stalls are in huge marquees. The outdoor music stage is covered, and we have an indoor food court and bar area. In other words, we will do our best to make sure that the show goes on, and everyone stays safe and dry.
