If you organise a local festival fair or concert you spend a lot of time repeating basic information to people. Gettin basic information onto the internet makes it much easier to keep people informed and can help stop the phone ringing so much. Also given how many people use google these days a good web page can be worth it’s weight in gold.
In Caldmore in the Black Country local aritsts were organising the Caldmore Festival. They went to the uk online centre for talk about local training. And produced this great site about the festival.
In London’s Kings Cross Sophie was organising a local festival. She began with a call for help on the website and as the festival grew and grew William helped her set up her own site. Hundreds of people came to the festival which was a huge success. The next time Sophie or others want to organise a festival locally they can point to the website to show that they can do it, making it easier to raise money and get people involved.
