Hullavington Music and Arts Festival - HarFEST
The Hullavington Music and Arts Festival HarFEST takes place over a two week period in September at harvest time, hence the name. The prime purpose of HarFEST is to encourage the whole community to become involved in the arts in as many ways as possible. Although a church initiative, it is not a church centred festival. The majority of musicians, performers and artists are from the village, or immediate locality. In 2009 there were fourteen performances and events, with over two hundred and forty people performing and contributing to exhibitions.
HarFEST is self-financing, does not seek to make a profit, but ploughs any surplus monies back into the community - eg. financing specialist music workshops for the village school, and providing the village with a portable stage lighting system.
