The Golden Iris Festival has been conceived by a young group of event producers. Concerned by the death of two of their peers and friends in recent years and the increasing challenges they see around mental health they have worked to create the blue print for the Golden Iris Festival.

The Festival aims to encourage Totnes to come together as a community, and to show off the talents we all have. The project is aiming to reconnect people, and with the activities for young people limited, the young people themselves want to stop complaining and bring about some change.

If successful it is hoped that the Golden Iris Festival will become a regular feature of the local calendar. This year it will open with a circus themed fashion show on Friday 6th of October followed by a day of workshops, music, dance and inspirational talks and debates on Saturday 7th. The capacity for this event is 1,500. Through the Festival, this year and into the future, the aim is to raise money for projects in the local community and globally, particularly around mental health and inclusion.

The Golden Iris Festival team are looking for vendors. If you are interested in a pitch for this years’ event on 7th October please download a brief for vendors or download a brief for organisations/stall holders and respond to
