A new year, a new start!
12 Jan 2017
It’s been a while since our last update – which was in fact published a few days before the last LIBF back in September. So apologies for the disgraceful period of radio silence. First thing to do is to thank everyone that attended LIBF5, It was by far our most successful event to date, the brewery line up was , in our view, awesome, the food market once again offered delicious treats for all and the music programme, courtesy of Lumen Arts, brought together an amazing array of live performance, DJ sets and art installations. In total, just over 10,000 people attended the festival over the 4 days and the feedback was overwhelmingly positive. Ultimately, the festival wouldn’t be what it is without you, the audience, you enthusiasm for the event really makes it what it is – so thanks again.
We also wanted everyone to know that the festival raised £4,048.66 for WaterAid last year, more than double the amount raised in the previous year. You token and cash contributions were enough to provide 270 people with access to clean water for life. On behalf of WaterAid and the festival a huge, huge thank you!!!
