In 2015 more than 6000 visitors – babies to teens to senior citizens – attended Village Beach to enjoy the  packed programme.

This year five different stages will showcase the best of local bands and performers; Village Beach Main Stage, Thames Delta Stage, Perform Stage, Global Stage and Busking Beach Hut.

The Park’s green spaces, ‘the beach’, the riverside pathway and the marketplace will all host an eclectic mix of arts led activities, developed with some of the most creative and original arts organisations from around the region.

have_a_market_stall_at_the_festival-38

We are offering market stalls to locally-based artists and makers to sell or show their arts and crafts to 6000+ visitors.

We encourage stalls to be as interactive and engaging as possible, as experience tells us that these are the ones visitied most.

Stalls of an artistic and musical theme will be given priority, however we do welcome local community groups and charities who have fantastic and vital messages to convey.

To find out more information and apply for your stall, please click HERE.

 

come_and_volunteer-39

Metal could not deliver a successful Village Beach without the amazing help of our hard-working army of committed and valued volunteers.

Volunteering can be a rewarding experience of giving back to your community – or it can provide valuable work experience.   Opportunities include: being part of the back stage crew; media team; photography and film crew; artist liaison; hospitality; and stewarding.

If you would like to get involved, more information and an easy-to- fill-in form can be found here click HERE.
