All profits that we make are invested in both the improvement of the Festival and in our community, either by donations or payment for upgrading facilities. In 2019 we supported St Nicholas Night to the tune of £1000, we paid for the upgrading of the PA system so that it covers Church St and Henley St and we made further donations totalling £3000 to local voluntary organisations during the Covid lock downs.

Our aaounts are audited independently by Charterhouse Group.
