Following yet another hugely successful festival, Forest Hill School are pleased to announce the return of its flagship community arts festival Forest Fest 2012.

Posted: 10/03/2022

The festival, which will be held on Saturday 7th July 2012 (12pm-5pm), plans to have a jam-packed programme which will include live music, dance and drama performances from local home-grown talent, an array of workshops for all ages, an arts market area to tempt visitors with stalls displaying a plethora of information and selling exquisite handcrafted goods, as well as a scrumptious array of food and refreshments.

The event will be marketed widely through a mix of leaflet and poster distribution, banner advertising, listings and editorial in local and regional newsletters, newspapers and publications as well as online. Originally launched in 2009 Forest Fest attracted in excess of 2,000 visitors; 2010 saw 3,900 visitors and last year it continued to grow and develop with more than 4,300 visitors.

Forest Fest 2012 presents the ideal opportunity for arts and catering organisations and businesses to trade and promote their services to a wide and diverse community audience. Promotional options include stall (7 x 3ft table with 7 x 7ft canopy) or pitch only hire (13 x 13ft) for food catering units only, at the following rates:

“Information” only stall = £35

Arts Businesses/Traders in Perry Vale, Forest Hill & Sydenham Wards = £40

Arts Businesses/Traders outside the above wards = £45

Food Traders = £150
