Jesmond Community Festival 2018  


 
 
The Jesmond Community Forum Festival   5 May - 27 May 2018           Follow Jesmond Community Festival on Facebook                                  

The 2018 Jesmond Community Festival starts with a spectacular fair on Saturday 5th and continues with more than 100 more events through to Sunday 27th May. As usual, there is something for everyone, from toddlers to pensioners, with choral concerts, talks, readings, open days, family fun activities, walking tours, jazz, competitions, a fair and much more!..

Most Events Free!
Unless otherwise stated, all the events in this programme are free, although some require booking in advance. Where charges are made, they are kept low, to cover costs, or to raise money for a named charity.

The full programme is on this site, below. Most events will be free and open to all, but in some cases there will be a small charge, and advance booking will be necessary for a limited number of the most popular events.

Most of last year's venues are taking part again in 2018, but for the first time we also look forward to some exciting new events and, of course, the Fair on the first Saturday, Sat 5th May.

For further information in due course, keep watching this website, or our Facebook page.
Or you can pick up a free programme from Oxfam Books and Music, Jesmond Library, or various other community locations.
