A recent open meeting of Jesmond Community Forum decided to start planning for a 2024 Jesmond Community Festival. The festival will start on Saturday 4 May and end on Sunday 2 June, unless anything happens before then to change our minds!

Anyone beginning to plan an event may like to know that next year’s Early May Bank Holiday is to be on 6 May, Spring Bank Holiday is 27 May, and 27 – 31 May is likely to be Half Term Week at West Jesmond School. Easter is comparatively early next year (Easter Sunday will be 31 March) and West Jesmond’s summer term is likely to start on 15 April.

Any queries about next year’s festival should be emailed to info@jesmondfestival.org.uk .
