Glusburn Fallfest hailed a big success
11:00am Sunday 29th September 2013 in News
An outdoor stage and funfair helped make the third Fallfest the biggest ever.
Around 1,500 people attended music, crafts and community events during last weekend’s festival in Glusburn. Attractions included outdoor rock and acoustic music and a Last Night of the Proms at Glusburn Institute.
A produce market on Saturday was so popular that many stalls sold out.
Jason Smith, one of the organisers, said the event had “gone down a storm” with everyone.
He said: “We had around 1,500 with us all weekend which is phenomenal for a community event. We keep increasing our audience figures year on year.
“We tried to have a range of music and cater for everyone and we feel we did just that. From Friday night with My Forever right through to the last note from the Swing City Big Band on Sunday night there has been a vibe.
“The Friday night attracted a younger audience whilst the older end loved the music of the Last Night of the Proms, which was an exceptional gala event.”
Mr Smith said a room at Glusburn Institute was transformed into an English country garden so that people could sit and and drink Pimms before the Proms.
He said the organising team would soon be examining the results of a survey on how things could be improved. He added: “We are excited about the future prospects for the festival and are looking forward to putting ideas into action for Fallfest 2014.”
