This section of the website includes plenty of ideas and guides you through getting organised and gaining publicity. Many of the ideas are relatively easy and quick to organise, however, for those who want to be more adventurous, there are also some that require a little more time and effort - but with some keen helpers on board anything is possible.  The sky’s the limit!

It’s not the size of your event that matters, it’s getting involved that’s important.
