Coming Back In 2021!
The aims of the Linthwaite Leadboilers Festival are to stage a community led event in the village of Linthwaite to bring residents of Linthwaite and the Colne Valley together, to celebrate “all things Linthwaite”. It aims to embrace the history of the Leadboiler Folklore story and it’s place in the Colne valley and use it to create a unique identity for the festival and make people feel proud of the village and where they live. Our objectives are to be inclusive of the whole community of the Colne Valley, to express the beauty of Linthwaite village through a variety of media – music, arts, sports, games, pastimes, children’s and youth activities, crafts, pets, and to entertain and amuse patrons of the event.
Every year, our objective is to break even and to seek sources of sustainable cash to develop the festival year on year, including working with charity partners. A key part of the Leadboilers Festival is it should be as free to attend as possible, with calling on people’s pocket not the aim of the event. It should be affordable to the whole community and try and make things better for the village.
