Festivals Toolkit

Welcome to the Festival Toolkit for Derbyshire. These pages provide advice and guidance on how to manage, sustain and develop arts festivals in Derbyshire and Derby City.

The toolkit covers all stages of festival management from developing the initial concept through to the evaluation.

It's stuffed full of advice and information, tips and guidance. There are lots of resources contained in the Toolkit, including downloads, contacts, grass roots advice and examples of good practice. We talked to a number of festival organisers whilst creating this Toolkit to find out what would be most useful.

So whether you need help with marketing, ticketing, health & safety, or even your constitution, you will find something in the Toolkit  that will be of interest to you.

You can browse the Toolkit's sections using the links on the left.
