Goosfest organisers want to hear from you

By on November 17, 2018

The organisers of Goosfest, Goostrey’s annual festival, are looking for feedback and suggestions for future events.

Goosfest 2018 was the largest programme to date, with 28 activities, including classical music, country and western, popular music, Broadway favourites, jazz and folk, plus drama, comedy, and magic as well as a range of workshops.

They’re asking for any suggestions for next year’s events, plus comments on the events from this year, to

Goosfest chairman Bill Ollier said: “Every year, we try to put together a varied programme – something for everyone, we hope. But we’re always open to new ideas or suggestions for who we might ask to perform. We’re a not-for-profit organisation, so we obviously have a limit to the fees we can pay for acts, but we try to get the best possible quality of entertainment within the budgets we manage. So, if anyone has an idea for entertainment, a lecture or a workshop, then please get in touch quickly, as we aim to have next year’s schedule mapped out by Christmas. In the meantime, the Goosfest Committee would like to thank everyone for their support this year, and also for their patience and understanding as we had to introduce new ticketing processes due to unforeseen circumstances.”

Goosfest, held every October, is organised by a group of local volunteers. If you would like to be involved – by joining the Goosfest committee or by volunteering to help with needs such as event set-up, the bar rota, leafletting etc – please email
