Access to Furrowfields car parks is not be possible during the parade.

If you arrive by bike, please note cycling is not permitted in the event area.

Who organises Chatteris Midsummer Festival?

Chatteris Midsummer Festival is a Fenland Four Seasons event driven by a dedicated committee of volunteers.

The committee puts in many hours of work to plan, organise, deliver and fundraise for a programme of events and activities.

We would like to thank all the organisations and people that have contributed to the event's success over the years and the generosity of local businesses in sponsoring the event and programme.

Fenland District Council provides some seed money to each of the Fenland Four Seasons events, an officer to support in the coordination and planning of them, support with bookings and administration and to ensure staffing for many aspects of the on-the-day running.

Chatteris Town Council also co-funds the event and provides officer time and invaluable support.
