CTEG plans to deliver ‘Love the 60’s Festival’ in Spring of 2021, as the lock-down becomes a distant memory. During the day there will be several different areas for people to gather with their family and friends and share the delights of entertainment and music from the '60s. The main stage area will host live music and dance in the style of artists from the era. There will be vintage vehicles on display and a retro 60's shopping village. There will also be a family village with fun attractions for children of all ages, including live entertainment, arts and crafts and picnic in the park. So get dressed in the style of the 60's (optional) and bring your friends and family to join in with the fun and nostalgia. This will be your chance to kick 2020 into touch by creating happy memories of the summer of 2021.

What we'll deliver:

  • Free entertainment and activities for all
  • Support local businesses and the local economy
  • Live performances across different arts and culture
  • Vibrant outdoor pop-up stalls
  • Portray a positive image for Cleckheaton and surrounding areas
  • Bring diversity and cultural to the festival
  • Offer an insight in to an entertaining and exciting era - the 60's
  • Bring together local communities and group to take part

Why it's a great idea:

The idea of the Cleckheaton 60’s festival originated when local man Bob Boocock floated the suggestion of holding a free community event on “Cleckheaton What’s On”, a popular FB page he created. When the 5k+ group were asked what type of festival they would like to see hosted in the town, the 60’s theme was the overwhelming winner. Cleckheaton Town Events Group (CTEG) was created to turn this into a reality. The festival will be accessible to friends and families from local and extended areas and will appeal to all age groups, offering new experiences for some and memories for others. We expect that the 60’s festival will attract more visitors to the town and show them what Cleckheaton has to offer. We plan to invite local businesses, schools and community groups to join in to help make the event a success. Cleckheaton has great accessibility: Local green walkway from Dewsbury - Low Moor, 5 min drive from M62, central bus station & free parking.

Steps to get it done:

  • Submitting project onto Spacehive
  • Finalising the plans for the event
  • Procuring the staging and support services
  • Raising funding for the event
  • Getting project approved on Spacehive
  • Appoint Contractors for Stage
  • Appoint Contractors for Event Management & Security

  • Create marketing campiagn
  • Recruit Volunteers
  • Liaise with all sub-contractors
  • Create T & C's for all sub-contractors
  • Ensure all sub-contractors have public Liability insurance
  • Purchase Event Day Liability Insurance

With the decline in many high streets - we want to proactively help support the local business community as well as bring people together to enjoy events in Cleckheaton. CTEG is a constituted organisation and aims to create events to encourage communities to come together.
