Tracy's Dream for this years Festival..      ...can you help?

"I have a dream for Umbrella Fair 2015. 
When our volunteers and the public first walk on site, this August, I'd like them to be immediately struck by the fabulous and colourful new flags.
I already have several very talented volunteer machinists and a newly donated and reliable sewing machine so I have all the means necessary to make them. I just need some suitable fabric
Ideally I'd like a budget of around £200 to buy loads of colourful Sari fabric. 
So do any of you have any ideas how we might go about raising some money for the fabric or alternatively does anyone know of any colourful, soft and floaty fabric that might be donated....."

 please contact us here  if you can help

Great News....

We have lots of performance spaces still to book on the Youth stage and the Global Mela stage....please tell any young or world music musicians you know...we'd love to have them at the fair
