MEMBERS of the public can have their say about Stone Music and Arts Festival at a public meeting.
Chairman Dr Steve Brookes will present his annual report at the annual general meeting and members of the group will then discuss the initial plans for next year’s event.
Organisers say it is the biggest free music festival in the West Midland and want to make it the best yet.
The annual event, which as been running since 2008, attracts thousands of people to the town for two days of live music on stages in the high street.
This year’s event in July saw more than 25 groups and solo artists present nearly 20 hours of live music and performance.
“We are looking forward to our sixth festival in July 2014,” said Mr Brookes.
“As volunteers we know all too well that organising the festival is hard work but our reward is to see thousands of happy faces singing and sometimes dancing along to the musicians we put on the stages.
The group will also be looking for more volunteers to help them in planning and putting on next years event.
Mr Brookes added: “It’s Stone’s music and arts festival so let everyone in the town join us in making it an event to be proud of.
“We are keen to encourage people from Stone to give as little or as much of their time as they can. It is very rewarding and we are building not only a good festival group but also a group of friends who share a love of music and arts.”
The meeting will take place at Stone Railway Station community meeting room.
The meeting is taking place on Monday (16) at 7.30 pm.
