Dukinfield Community Festival

Dukinfield Community Festival


As part of our long-standing commitment to the local community, Right Events Projects Director, Barry McTierney volunteered to manage and run the 3rd Annual Dukinfield Community Festival at Dukinfield Park in Cheshire.

With a fantastic organising group including local Head Teachers, New Charter Housing, Sports Colleges and Police, Barry was asked to become chair of the community group committee to ensure the smooth running of the event.

With available funding limited the event delivery became dependent on negotiating great rates as well as generating income from vendors so having approached a number of vendors to deliver services on the day, income was generated and additional funding was then offered to support the event.

With the financial support now in place it was up to Right Events to complete the relevant risk assessments and local council documents, event briefings, site maps, vendor allocations, as well as undertake all budgetary control and insurance requirements.

Paperwork completed successfully and submitted to local authorities; organising was well underway.

Multiple local groups, authorities and companies committed to being a major part of the event with local healthcare groups, churches, schools, police, fire services, housing services and community organisations all represented as well as a host of activities for everyone including.

With a climbing wall, inflatable assault course, face painting along salsa and gymnastic classes being provided by Astley Sports [website] and interactive music sessions with Corporal Jones [website] who provided guitars, drums, microphones and sound machines for the local kids to enjoy, the event reached out to all ends of the local community and attracted close to 5,000 attendees.

A proud day for the local community and a proud day for Right Events.
