Members of Chudleigh Writers Circle work on a group story during Chudfest 2015

Chudfest has been providing entertainment, education and arts within Chudleigh since 2011. None of our events would be possible without the support of the committed volunteers and other organisations in our town. Our main event is a ten-day summer festival in a huge marquee on the Play Park in the centre of town.

We are always delighted to work closely with Chudleigh Carnival and each year in May we produce a joint programme that is delivered to all houses in Chudleigh. For the 2nd year running we are jointly branding the two weeks as Chudleigh Summer Spectacular.

Over the years Chudfest has expanded and now also runs Open Gardens, the Garden and Produce Show and the Christmas Fayre.

While the Chudfest committee organises some events, we welcome other organisations who wish to to use the marquee.  Each year , we have the Parish Church, Scouts, Pre-School, Chudleigh Writers’ Circle and many others involved in events.  Additionally we enjoy working with the Primary School to provide interactive workshops with reptiles and birds of prey;  literary workshops and competition;  as well as the annual toddlers’ party.

Our aim is to provide a range of activities to suit all taste and all pockets. Chudfest is financed by the tickets we sell, advertising in the brochure, competitions  and raffles and through sponsorship.  We are proud that Chudfest is a self-financing operation.

We keep things fresh and would welcome more people who are willing to organise events. So, come join the team; if you want to take part you can contact us at chudfest@yahoo.co.uk
