Come to the Festival and take part

With about 25,000 people coming over the weekend, you''ll find a great range of interests. You may want to come as a performer in music, dance or verse; to present your Charity or organisation; to sell your wares; to cater for the visitors; or to bring your boat.


If you wish to perform on one of our entertainment stages during the weekend please send your details to to register your interest.

Please note we already filled almost all the performance slots for 2018 and so we currently have a waiting list. We may have some space arising if anyone drops out and of course if you would like to perform in 2019 please register your interest by email and we can add you to our waiting list. 


If you wish to apply as a commercial trader or a charity please download the application form for a Trading pitch here. There is also a letter proving further information for traders which you should read in conjunction with making your booking. Please note we normally do run out of trade space before the Festival but at the moment we still have a small amount of space left. Once this is gone we run a waiting list and will contact you if a suitable space becomes free. If you have any questions about trading in 2018 please email


PLEASE NOTE - all Catering franchises have already been allocated for 2018 but we do maintain a list of caterers who would be interested in attending if a suitable opening arises so please email to register your interest.


Those who have attended last year have already been contacted about applying for moorings.

If you wish to attend for the first time please email to apply for a mooring and you will be sent the application pack after February 1st. We have done this so we can better manage allocating the limited space we have. Please email if you have any enquiries about bringing a boat or trading.

We look forward to welcoming you to the 25th Rickmansworth Festival on the 19th and 20th May 2018.
