Since 2005 The Festival has been independently organised by a voluntary Festival Committee and gained Charitable Status in November 2006 (Charity No. 1116983). Whilst the Committee has changed slightly over the years the hard work and dedication of this group of volunteers – past and present – has enabled the Festival to continue and flourish.
