About

The Thornton Heath Festival is a locally run not-for-profit event organised by a committee of charitable minded local business people (originally the Thornton Heath Business Partnership), local representatives and local volunteers:

Tony Rowland – Chairman

Councillor Callton Young OBE – Vice Chairman

Councillor Pat Clouder – Licensing & Safety Manager

Hon. Alderman & Freeman, Adrian Dennis – Stall Planning & Risks Manager

Karen Barnett – Carnival Procession Manager

Everton Brown – Security Manager

Councillor Karen Jewitt

Agnes Forbes

The committee works closely with the local council, emergency services and other agencies to ensure that each Festival runs smoothly.

The aim of these Festivals is to bring Thornton Heath’s diverse communities together for a fun-packed day by providing something for people of all groups, ages and backgrounds.

Funds generated are used for Thornton Heath’s Christmas lights or ploughed back into each following year’s Festival.

The 2016 Festival is the tenth of its kind.  Last year’s drew a crowd of about 6,000 revelers.
