Coulsdon Yulefest was set up in 2013 with the sole aim to bring
Christmas festivities back to the town of Coulsdon. Set up by a handful
of volunteers from local community groups, businesses & residents, it
was put together in just 4 months & proved to be a great first year
creating our footprint for this year’s festival.
For years Coulsdon has been fading away, businesses closing and
residents going elsewhere. With Coulsdon Yulefest we hope to start
to improve business relationships within the community.
Last year’s Yulefest weekend saw the community speak with their
feet. Footfall was up & local shop takings over the two days increased
This year’s festival is hoping to build upon our success of our first year,
our entertainment stage is back and a bigger market is planned. We
also have the addition of an amazing Ice Rink to add to the attractions
we are planning.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Helping us achieve our goal for Yulefest would be amazing.
Last years festival proved that community spirit is still very much alive. It showed that with a handful of volunteers and the passion, goals can be reached and the achievement is beyond words.
Children smiling and playing, and seeing Santa, while the parents browsed the market while taking in the ambiance of the live entertainment. The laughter in the air and the happiness all around. Forgetting everything of the world for one brief moment.
With one dream, we are able to create many memories, and that's why its not just a great idea its an amazing idea.
Steps to get it done:
For us Coulsdon Yulefest is much more than just a festival. Its a means to bring laughter and smiles back to a community that of late has its fair share of problems.
Coulsdon Yulefest gives everybody the chance to be a community again, to bring together the younger & older, bring residents and businesses and to allow us all to thrive.
Our community are prepared are you?
