Weatherproofing for popular Hartlepool Festival
Organisers of Hartlepool Wintertide Festival have received funding to purchase a marquee.
Headland Festivals Group help to organise the Wintertide Festival, which is now in its' 5th year and sees on average 10,000 people attend each year, to celebrate local heritage and creative talent.
With help from Tees Valley Community Foundation, Hartlepool Festivals Group were able to purchase the large industrial marquee which not only provides weather proofing for visitors but increases the indoor space available to deliver workshops, performances, film screenings and house stalls for small businesses to showcase their work. They will also be able to generate income throughout the year by hiring the marquee out.
