Jesmond Community Festival

Jesmond Community Festival

SINCE 2005 JESMOND COMMUNITY FESTIVAL HAS BEEN AN ANNUAL SHOWCASE FOR THE WIDE RANGE OF COMMUNITY ACTIVITIES TAKING PLACE IN JESMOND. THE 2020 FESTIVAL HAD TO BE CANCELLED, BUT THE 2021 FESTIVAL WAS ABLE TO TAKE PLACE, THANKS TO THE INGENUITY OF JESMOND’S MANY ENTERPRISING GROUPS.

This website contains some information on all the events which took place as part of the 2021 festival, whether online or, where possible, “physical”. If you have any queries, email info@jesmondfestival.org.uk . Many thanks to all the individual organisations who have worked hard to come up with bright ideas to entertain and challenge you in such difficult times, and to everyone who supported or took part in the events.

The photographs below were taken during previous festivals, and show a heritage tour in Jesmond Old Cemetery, the Town Crier, Marjorie Dodds, trying out a vintage motorcycle, and a winning entry in the Glorious Gardens competition.
