October, 2016 Hythe Festival 2018 - Can You Help?


Following the huge success of the 2016 Hythe Festival plans are now underway for 2018 but the Festival Committee needs your help. Click Here for a chart of the roles that the Festival committee is looking to fill (the roles in GREEN are already filled). If you would like to help please contact John Keesing at .


With regard to the planning for 2018, the Festival committee has an urgent need for people to come forward to take on roles, as either main or sub-committee members. Without this, the viability of the festival is at risk. Several of the committee members from 2016 have had to stand down, and the committee for the last festival was already very small. The Festival committee thanks those who have already pledged their support in a committee role.
