About the Event
In 2009 it was decided to hold an event to celebrate the wonderful improvements made to Reigate Priory Park and to combine this by celebrating Armed Forces Day.
After such a successful event, a handful of like-minded local people decided to form a group with the aim of encouraging local events, with an annual festival in the park as the flagship. This group was called the Reigate Events Collective.
In 2010 saw the launch of the newly-named, Reigate Community Festival.
This festival is held every year on the last weekend in June and has become an eagerly anticipated date on the local calendar, rapidly becoming the most well-attended event in the town. So much so that in 2013 it attracted upwards of 5,000 visitors and 100 stands to make a very special day for Reigate community.
In recognition for the 2013 event, the team was nominated for and awarded Reigate & Banstead Borough Councils – Mayor’s Volunteer Team Award.
The 2013 team members were:
with help from:
- Helen (Priory Park)
- John (Professor Twist)
- Tommy (funfair)
