Joining Forces for a Fabulous Festival

The Kenilworth Festival committee has been boosted by a pledge of support from The Kenilworth Soroptimists.  The Festival, which is promoted by the Rotary Club, is organised by a committee of people from the community.

President of the Soroptimists, Di Nash said: “The Kenilworth Festival is all about bringing the community together and promoting local businesses by putting on a varied programme of quality entertainment to appeal to all ages. 

“We are delighted to lend our support and to help organise events such as the Art Exhibition and Sale, the Childrens’ Sports at Party in the Park and Elizabeth at the Castle – a historical talk by TV’s Lesley Smith who will visit the town during the Festival week.”

Co-Chair of the Kenilworth Festival, Roy Shearing  said: “We are very grateful to have the help of the Soroptimists.  The organisation of the Festival is entirely by volunteers and as the Festival grows bigger each year, it is a huge job  – we are always in need of extra pairs of hands.  This year we held almost 70 events in 7 days and the 2010 event is shaping up to be busier than ever.”

The 2010 Kenilworth Festival will run from 10th to 16th May, with a grand launch in the town on 8th May.

The programme of events is currently being finalised and anyone interested in sponsoring an event, performing or getting involved is welcome to call Roy on 01926 777090.  All the latest information is available at
