 Important information – A change this year

This year we are asking that you the artist contact and organise your event with the venue. However, we are more than happy to advise or discuss appropriate venues. Please email or message us on Facebook to ask for suggestions. Alternatively, call Angela Struthers (Chair Person) 07908 191 768 for ideas about venues which may be suitable for you. Often just popping in the venue just asking is the best way. Just let them know that you wish to perform for the Leytonstone Festival. We have contacted all the venues and they expecting to be contacted directly by applications.

This will help save on double bookings, mixed up communications and delays in arranging the Festival. So, hopefully this’ll make for a smoother experience for all involved and make the Festival the success we all wish it to be.

Please read the Terms and conditions  at the bottom of the form.

Please write in BLOCK CAPITALS and BLACK PEN when completing by hand.

Deadline for submissions is Midnight Friday 31st March 2017.

6. Request for any financial support from Leytonstone Festival

Please specify how much financial support (if any) you would like for your event. Provide an explanation of these costs. Please remember we are a community festival organised entirely by volunteers. Though we raise funds from WF council, other sponsors and advertising. The sum we raise is very limited, please consider this when applying.

Any event for which you are not charging for will definitely go ahead and be included in the programme.

Check with the venue where you are putting your event on, you may be able to charge an entrance fee. You would need to negotiate that with the venue.
