Priston music festival, run by a registered charity, tries to be as free as possible for people to attend. It is not ticketed. We also try to pay the great bands who play for us a meaningful fee. So the finances are a challenge. Getting stuff off Freegle, like chairs, mic stands, small gazebos, bits of equipment, and so on, has helped us keep the festival going for 12 years now. We realise Freegle needs people to give and well as receive. We have - as individuals also donated to Freegle, sometimes responding to requests. For example we recently donated a good quality Sony hand-held cassette recorder and microphone to someone who was helping people dealing with benefits claims etc. We have also offered people the chance to come to pick apples off trees in our village.
