New Mills Festival Call for Events

Firstly, the dates for New Mills Festival 2023 are confirmed as 8 to 30 September. Pop that in your diary here and now!

Secondly, we want to pack the fortnight with events! All kinds of events; musical, arty, acts, walks, talks, displays, performances, interactive, and the usual assortment of quirky, entertaining, educational and crafty events New Mills loves!

As always, New Mills Festival relies on a superb mix of community spirit, local groups, organisations, individuals and enterprises to pull this out of the bag. It’s up to you all to shape it and make it so it’s a Festival that’s both by you and for you. We need you to lead the entertainment, to showcase your business/venue/band/passion and share what’s important to you with the town.
