DissFest- 21st, 22nd & 23rd July

Posted by on 14 June 2017

DissFest’ 2017 – Community and Arts Festival needs you!

DissFest’ is back for 2017! And this year they are focusing on the local community and local professional artists filling Mere Park with music, dance, art and theatre for the whole weekend – Friday 21st, Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd July.

There are loads of ways for young people to get involved this year; from volunteering your time, performing on the Band Stand, as a busker in the street, or taking part in an arts-based workshop.

And if you fancy being creative yourself, why not sign up for our writing and photography competitions too or just turn up to enjoy!


On top of all of this, we are still taking applications to join our Young Associate programme, for 14-19 year olds, where local young people learn more about the arts and contribute to the programming of the main stage. Any questions contact Kayt or Sally and they will be glad to assist you.

Unit Twenty Three say "We want the festival to have a community vibe this year, filled with people from the town and surrounding areas who are passionate about being creative and sharing their talent and skills with all ages. If you feel you can bring something to the Festival, please don’t hesitate to get in touch!

Interested? Why not head over to our website – or contact the team for application forms and more information".
