The first Discover Festival in 2012 saw over 6000 people attending 186 events across the local area. Organised by South Gloucestershire Council, local residents, community groups and businesses, it offers an exciting and diverse programme of events for all ages to discover something new and find out why South Gloucestershire is such a great place to live and work.

Bringing together many successful celebrations in the district, the festival programme has something for all ages and tastes – including events, talks, walks and workshops focussing on local heritage, local food, local nature, local arts, health and wellbeing, and also special events for people aged 50+, many of which link to ongoing activities that continue after the festival.

If your business, community group or organisation could organise an open day, a talk, a walk, a taster session or a performance, or if you are already running a special one off event that you would like us to publicise as part of the festival then get in touch.

This is a fantastic opportunity to showcase your work and encourage new members to join you. We will promote your event as part of the festival and all events will be featured in our festival programme.

Previous examples of events at Discover include food tasting sessions, drawing classes, history talks, nature walks, workshops on tracing your family tree, and an open day at a local brewery.

If you would like to take part in Discover 2013, please complete our event registration form at www.southglos.gov.uk/registerfordiscover before Friday 3 May.

Guidelines for businesses, groups and organisations wishing to apply can be found in our terms and conditions on the website.
