Got An Event for 2020? Get Involved in New Mills Festival!

Work has begun on the cultural extravaganza that will be New Mills Festival 2020 and we would love you to take part.

This year's theme is "Vision" (but you don’t have to go with the theme, it is just a suggestion to help with inspiration!). It's taking place from Friday 11th September until Sunday 27th. 

Packed full (with your help!) with community events, screenings, gigs, walks, talks and art. A non-stop two weeks of creativity, family fun and community involvement. We are looking forward to another highly successful Festival programme that highlights the extraordinary community spirit of New Mills. 

If you're thinking of hosting an event, or if you want an event included in this year's programme, you can find all the details of how to enter on our website There’s also lots of useful information on how to make your event as successful as possible.

The programme is already filling up fast especially for the weekend dates, so the festival Programming Committee especially welcomes any events that can be held on weekday nights, in order that we can have a well-balanced festival programme.

If you don't want to run your own event but would like to get involved in the festival, why not volunteer to help? You can find more information here:

If you have any queries or want to discuss any ideas you have please email us at and we’ll try to help.

We hope you will want to join in our programme for this year, and look forward to hearing from you.
