Thanks to all our 2019 festival partners
A town-based festival of the size and complexity of AWF takes a lot of organising, money and hard work. So those on the AWF team who plan the event take this opportunity to thank the sponsors and all the other volunteers for their support and dedication. It really is a fact that without their commitment, this festival - run by and for the community - just wouldn’t happen. So please take a bow.
We also appreciate the goodwill of the many hundreds of Alresford residents whose town is turned on its head on the third Sunday each May. We hope that when the festival “comes to town”, they get out and enjoy it along with the many thousands of visitors who flock here every year.
Festival Sponsors 2019
The festival could not exist without our sponsors and we take this opportunity to express our sincere thanks to them for their generous financial support.
The NFU Watercress Association has a long history of looking after the interests of watercress growers in the south of England and is the festival’s main sponsor.
Hazeley Developments Ltd is a local, family run property developer currently completing their first scheme in Alresford: The Old Police Station on Station Road.
Charters Estate Agents provide a comprehensive property service for homeowners, buyers, landlords and businesses.
A small team of volunteers work tirelessly during the months leading up to the festival and on the day itself. They book performers, children’s entertainers, celebrity chefs and stall-holders, liaise with the Emergency Services and licensing authorities, issue press releases, design the programme/website and manage the logistics including traffic signs, loos, stages, power, water, insurance, etc.
The AWF team is Charles Barter, Claire May, Davina Tibbetts, Gill Grant, John Cattle, Roy Gentry, Tom Amery, Simon Evans & Steve May.
On the day of the festival, over 100 volunteers from local sports clubs and voluntary organisations manage the car parks, man traffic barriers, assist set-up the markets and ensure the site is neat, tidy and litter-free. They provide assistance to many of the thousands of visitors and perform numerous other tasks. Their efforts ensure that the festival continues to feature as an important event in the town’s calendar.
