Leith Festival - anybody up for a parade?

Postby robrwo » Wed Mar 30, 2011 9:24 am

Hi All,

We have the option of participating in the Leith Festival this year (10-19 June, ) - not just to have some events at The Forest listed in the programme (it would be as the Festival supporting the Forest), but also to participate in the parade (!!! - June 11 or 12).

Anyone interested?

Rob

I reckon there are some fantastic opportunities to do a bit of outreach here, which Forest is often sorely lacking. We can raise some awareness of what we do, and show that we're up for participating in community projects. Here's what we've been offered by Leith Festival, thanks to Rob chasing them up:

- Free listings for 1 or 2 events in the Leith Festival Programme (there's usually a fee). This could be absolutely anything, but the deadline's Friday at the latest. The dates are 10-19 June. If nothing else, I reckon we could list a big music-and-poetry fundraiser, to be held in Forest, and then figure out the details later. Thoughts? Suggestions?

- A stall at the Gala Day. We could sell some food, run a petition, take donations, hand out flyers, do anything that'd be useful. It'll cost us £45, but I reckon we could make that back with only 6 or 7 people putting in a couple days effort. Any volunteers? Deadline here is mid-May.

- A place in the parade. Oh please can we do this please? We could dress up and make some giant puppets or something and then be a lovely Foresty presence in a big community event. And hand out a load of flyers/formsd. Can only do us good fundraising-wise. Ideas? Deadline for this one coming up in the next few weeks.

This is a great set of opportunities, and I don't want to miss out!

If we go ahead with this, I'm gonna have to pass on co-ordinating it to someone else -- a little too much on my plate! If anyone's into it, let me know and I'll pass you the details.

Hello all

A little late in the day to be jumping on board perhaps, but is this happening? Would love a chance to dress up and wave some stuff...
