SLOW FESTIVAL update from the Organising Team

The Slow Festival Team would like to welcome all visitors to our town and wish them, and all locals, a very Happy Easter.  We will miss seeing you this year.

Many of you may be asking the questions “where is The Slow Festival?”,  “where is the Orange?” and so we thought that we would take this opportunity to keep everybody updated.

It was with heavy hearts that the volunteer team who have put together the festival each year made the decision that they could not convene a Slow Festival 2018 without a corporate sponsor.

The Festival has been run for the last eight years by a team of dedicated volunteers operating on a shoe string/break even budget.  With all the stress and worry that that entails, the team decided that they needed to put the festival on hold and concentrate on trying to find a sponsor who will hopefully enable them to bring the much loved festival back to town in 2019.

“In the meantime we are not resting on our laurels and regularly meet to brainstorm new and fresh ideas and ways to make the next festival bigger, better and more financially viable,” said Festival organiser, Amanda Dixon. “It is our sincere hope that a sponsor will be secured and that we will be back in 2019 to once again provide locals and visitors with an Easter weekend filled with the events and entertainment that the Slow Festival has become renowned for.”

If anyone reading this article knows of or, better still, has a company that would like to discuss sponsorship opportunities, please contact Amanda Dixon on
