We believe in bringing our community together, Chalfest aims to promote a real sense of community identity in the areas of Chalford and Eastcombe through this unique event. Chalfest is a not for profit community interest company and has been organised entirely by the good hearted volunteers in the community. Feel free to get involved (link to contact page for volunteering) and become part of this amazing experience.
We have four main aims
◆ To have all of the individuals and community groups working as one to both plan and implement the event. This way not only is there ‘something for everyone’ but we all get to learn from others around us
◆ To promote the community groups to allow them to fundraise as well as grow in public awareness, membership and support. This is achieved by giving community groups a free pitch at Chalfest to do as they will and from which they will keep all the proceeds
◆ To teach skills and compliment studies for people of all ages. We have had art students create awesome decor, cookery students help plan the food demo tent, young people on work experience or older people passing on invaluable knowledge
◆ To create a superb, fun and exciting event that we can all enjoy and of which we can all be truly proud
