ParkgateFest - a Winner's Story and You Could Be Next

Published: 13th February 2020 18:45

Do you sometimes wonder what happens to prize draws that you've entered - does anyone really win?

Well, we're here to tell you that they certainly do in the case of the ParkgateFest Early Bird draw.

In 2017, Sue Embley bought her ParkgateFest tickets online before the April deadline and her name came out of the hat to win a fabulous trip to Tenerife, sponsored by Eden Luxury Travel.

ParkgateFest Early Bird Prize DrawSue Embley went here - the Gran Hotel Bahia Del Duque in Tenerife - courtesy of ParkgateFest.

Sue says: "It was such a surprise! The team at ParkgateFest were so helpful in making the arrangements and the hotel staff were fantastic. We were made so welcome and had an amazing time.

"I would recommend anyone to enter any future prize draws and wish them good luck!"

So don't hang about, this year's Early Bird prize is a four night stay at the 5* Daios Cove in Crete (t&cs apply, see ParkgateFest website for details).

Described in online reviews as 'the best hotel on Crete', 'a haven of sheer luxury and relaxation' and 'simply superb', this is a truly amazing prize.

ParkgateFest 2020 Early Bird Prize DrawYOU could end up here...the 5* Daios Cove in Crete.

So to be in with a chance to win it, all you have to do is book your ParkgateFest 2020 tickets online before 30.4.2020 - simple as that. No strings, just a great weekend at the festival and the potential for a holiday thrown in!

The Parkgate fest  has been held twice in the years 2017 & 2018  at a private site at CH64 6RDThe fest was assisted on both years financially by a councillor contribution by Martin Barker and was sold to the public as raising money for community projects.Thanks for telling us who won the holiday very interesting but I would like to ask the organisers how much money was raised excluding the money given by Martin Barker for community projects on each of the years.

Thank You

Thank you for the enquiry, here is the answer, from the ParkgateFest organisers:

Some surplus in 2017 went to help towards the large planters you can see along the front and by the Cricket Club, contributing to the Parkgate in Bloom initiative. The rest of the funds went back into the following year's event to pay for deposits on stage / bands and activities.

In 2018, due to poor weather on the Saturday affecting takings, the festival just about broke even, hence why we took a year out to apply for funding and more sponsorship in order to proceed in 2020.

Naturally the team hopes that this year's festival is successful enough to enable more funds to be channelled into improvements in Parkgate.

Thanks Carrie for your help

Ok so nothing was received from the Parkgate fest in year 2018.
"Some surplus in 2017 went to help towards the large planters" that is great. Could you please ask the organisers how much was given towards the planters after the fest in 2017 excluding the contribution from CWaC  (Martin Barker).

I think your question has been answered sufficiently for the purposes of this website. However, if you require further information, please feel free to contact them yourself, there is a Contact page on their website: www.parkgatefest.co.uk.

I find it worrying that rather than just state the amount given towards the planters  the Parkgate fest organisers have provided a convoluted statement and ignored the question about how much was raised for the local community.

You need to log in before you can do that! It's only a quick registration process to join the AMA network and completely free.
