The Cotgrave Festival has been awarded a grant of over £9,000 to purchase equipment for use at future festivals.
Late last year the committee, in consultation with Cotgrave Town Council, put forward a bid to ‘Awards for All’ in order to purchase some of the items which for past festivals had to be hired in at considerable expense.
‘Awards for All’ recognised the splendid work the festival did towards drawing all elements of the community together and agreed to fund the bid in its entirety.
The 2015 Festival will take place on Saturday 20th June and will be bigger than ever. A Classic Car and Bike Show, wheelbarrow racing, egg catching and cake baking will be introduced for the first time.
The ever-popular Dog Show will allow local dog lovers to show off their hounds and there will be a full programme of arena events.
