Launching GillFest 2017 – a community festival for Gillingham, Dorset

The tireless team who organise GillFest 2017 have just launched this year’s programme of events and performers – and there really is something for everyone. If, like me, you are amazed and amused to see the names Pam Ayres, Rick Wakeman and The Manfreds appearing on the same festival programme – then don’t miss out: contact us to make a provisional booking for your accommodation and then book your event tickets online.

Most of the event venues are a short and easy walk from ‘Sunflowers’,  so you don’t even need to worry about parking. Or come to Gillingham by train – it’s a direct and easy journey from London Waterloo on the South West Trains Exeter St David’s line and we are a short walk/cab ride from the railway station.

In addition to a very diverse range of musical performers (one of whom is already booked in to stay with us!), GillFest will also offer an organised ramble (Gillingham is a ‘Walkers are Welcome’ town – take a look at our walking page for further details about what this means)  on Saturday 1st July and a town fete on the Meadow, pictured here, on Saturday 8th July.

We’re excited to showcase our lovely town and some of the talented residents during GillFest 2017,  which runs from 30th June to 9th July.  Please contact us to book your bed and breakfast accommodation and we look forward to meeting you.
