Wild About Huntingdon Festival 2024

The Wild About Huntingdon Festival is set for September 2024, and if you’re wondering how to get involved, here’s everything you need to know.  From September 28-29, Wild About Huntingdon will be teaming up with Huntingdonshire District Council to host a two day festival at Hinchingbrooke Country Park.

The festival aims to celebrate Huntingdonshire’s natural heritage and encourage people to feel responsible for its conservation.  There are stalls and activities lined up for the festival, however the team at Wild About Huntingdon are still looking for people to get involved.

Wild About Huntingdon is looking for:

– Local experts who can highlight local flora and fauna by way of information stands, talks, handouts or guided walks.

– People to run hands-on workshops covering topics such as sustainable living, wildlife conservation and eco-friendly practices.

– Local art and crafts stallholders.

– A variety of trade stalls selling an assortment of goodies – especially garden plants, food/homes for wildlife, garden items, pond supplies, fruit and vegetables and natural food and products.

– Charity stands – especially those involved with conservation and local wildlife.

– Information stands or exhibitions with particular regard to local conservation and environmental projects and how residents can get involved.

– Organisations which offer environmental/conservation education and/or volunteering opportunities.

– Skilled people who could demonstrate their expertise in crafts such as woodcrafts, arts, photography, pottery, printing, needlecraft or willow crafts.

– Health groups who could lead a short demonstration on ways we can help to improve our physical and mental health while outdoors.

All of these roles can be for Saturday, September 28 or Sunday, September 29 – or both.
