It’s hard to believe Gala Day was more than three months ago now but what an amazing day it was! Thousands attended Sunday’s family event and we know from the feedback how much everyone enjoyed our science extravaganza.

As autumn approaches, we’ve now started to think about next year’s event and we would absolutely love it if more people joined us to plan and run Sunday. We are a friendly group and we always welcome new ideas. There’s so much to think about!

From planning the parade and theme to overseeing the massive operation inside the Gala arena including the exhibitors, local dance/performing acts to even running community competitions, we want to make next year’s Gala Day the best yet.

We’d love to hear from you and even if you are unsure about how much you can commit or what you can offer, drop our chair, Emma, a line via this Facebook page or at gala@ampthillfestival.co.uk. We would love your help.

We’ve also got the main festival’s AGM on Tuesday 17th October where you can find out more about Gala and the rest of the festival.  It’s from 8pm onwards at the White Hart Stables Bar.

Something good planned for the weekend? Perhaps a quieter one than last weekend at the Ampthill Festival? If you have five minutes to spare then you could really help us out. The festival is a community festival so we want to get your feedback on what you liked and disliked. Just go to http://bit.ly/AFsurvey18; it will only take five minutes or so of your time. 

Please take some time and get your friends and families who were there to complete our short survey - its only open for the next few days. Remember, you could win one of five sets of tickets (2 x Ampthill Park Proms and 2 x AmpRocks) for next year.

While it is fresh in your mind, why not have your say about Ampthill Festival and tell us what you liked or disliked about this year and how we can make this incredible Festival even better? 

Just go to http://bit.ly/AFsurvey18; it will only take five minutes or so of your time and it will help us in our choice of acts, facilities and more. We are looking for as high a response as we can muster to properly represent all of the views of everyone that attended this year and we are only keeping the survey open for another week. 

You could win one of five sets of tickets (2 x Ampthill Park Proms and 2 x AmpRocks) for next year where you will be able to see the results of this survey first-hand.

What a creative bunch we have here in Ampthill. 

We had some amazing entries to our space themed cake competition, judged by Nancy Birtwhistle from Bake off. 

It was a tough call to make as the creativity and effort that went into each one was just out of this world. Here are a few pics of Nancy judging, she was looking at bake, creativity, effort and originality. 

*drum roll* Our 2017 WINNERS were...

Children
Winner: Alice Harrison
Runners up: Beth Palmer, Caitlin Phillips

Adults
Winner: Theresa Coles
Runners up: Paula Elliott, Jacqueline Wilson

Huge well done, Nancy was blown away with all of the entries so you all made her job of judging them really tough. She loved meeting everyone and performing her fantastic demo. So thank you all!

If you missed her Lemon Cheesecake with Strawberries demo....weve also posted the recipe for you!
