Fen Edge Festival | Volunteers needed

In case you haven’t heard about it yet the Fen Edge Festival is back in 2022, and everyone’s invited! After an enforced lay-off, FECA and the Organising Committee are really excited to be able to bring the Festival back on 24-26 June, and look forward to seeing everyone.

The Festival usually happens every two years. It brings the five Fen Edge villages together for a three-day celebration of family fun, activities, music and entertainment.

All the usual events, stalls and activities will be taking place, centred as ever on Cottenham Village Green and Village College.

The Venue music tent is morphing into the Fen Edge’svery own mini-Glastonbury Pyramid Stage to offer you the very best in local musical talent. The mini fun-fair will be back with the very popular carousel. FECA groups and others will be showcasing their activities.

Sustainability remains a key theme for the Festival. I’m sure there are some of you still using your eco cups from last time! This year we are taking things even further. We are working with Sustainable Cottenham to further reduce waste. Sustainable Cottenham and Cambridge Sustainable Food will be holding cooking demonstrations, and we will be planting our own virtual festival forest around the Fen Edge through tree sponsorship.

There are lots of ways to get involved. To showcase your group, contact activities@fenedgefestival.co.uk
If you are able to help for a couple of hours let us know using volunteer@fenedgefestival.co.uk

Keep an eye out for more news as we get closer to the summer. Please drop me an email, if you have any ideas or questions about the Festival – chair@fenedgefestival.co.uk

Looking forward to seeing everyone at FEF22!
