Thank you to EVERYONE who helped make Bean Feast 2017 a smiling, creative, musical success!
We had a very successful event in 2017, with more attendees, more volunteer involvement, a broader range of workshops, and a stellar music line up. Despite losing £500 of council grant funding, we were able to just about stay in the black and retain funds to seed a future event, and cut our waste and carbon footprint.
However, volunteer involvement on the organising committee throughout the year has fallen, and of the four 2017 members, all have returned to work or study in the last 18 months. This group now needs a well-earned break, and so Bean Feast will be taking a fallow year in 2018 after no further volunteers have stepped forward.
We aim to bring Bean Feast back again in 2019 – thank you to everyone who made such a happy and relaxed event possible in 2018.
