Pricing

Times are tough so we’ve kept our listings prices as low as possible.

The Brochure and Website/Social Media are the most effective ways of publicising your event, and to help with our costs we charge a small fee for inclusion.

For ticketed events, a single entry costs £65 with additional entries £40.

For free or community events, a single entry costs £50, with additional entries £25.

For multiple events, we may be able to offer a further discount.

Fees are significantly cheaper than similar events to reflect our new start and to ensure WestFest is accessible for all who wish to take part.
