At the heart of the Maidenhead Festival lies a simple yet powerful principle - it's an event organized for the community by the community. Our dedicated team works tirelessly to create an amazing experience for all, and they do it all for free. Why, you might ask? Because we believe in the magic of coming together, celebrating, and giving back.
As a member of Maidenhead Bridge Rotary Club the local community is always at the front of my mind. Coming up with ideas on how to improve the local area, fundraising for local causes and volunteering my time to improve the lives of others. When the chance to join the festival committee came about I couldn't refuse. I’m proud to head up the team that pulls together such a big community event that does so much to support so many local groups and organisations and gives the opportunity for local up and coming musicians to perform. It is brilliant to be able to support this amazing, free and fantastically fun town event.
I moved to Maidenhead about 8 years ago and to meet more people locally I volunteered for various organisations/charities in the area, including Maidenhead Festival. I enjoyed supporting the festival so much that I joined the committee to help organise!
I feel very lucky to be part of such a passionate group of people organising great things for our community!
We look forward to seeing you at the next festival!
I have been living in Maidenhead since 2008 and recently begun getting involved in local community projects. Having started local Maidenhead Basketball and Cricket teams ‘Maidenhead Royals’, I am now excited to be involved with Maidenhead Festival.
Founder of MagicHoops Basketball Academy, I bring my passion of the sport to more than 600 kids trained every week across 15 locations. Director of Webequator, a Software Development company with over 20 years experience in the IT industry.
It’s shaping up to be a great event and I am looking forward to seeing you all soon this summer!
Born and brought up in Maidenhead, and via joining Maidenhead Bridge Rotary, I volunteered to help with the set up of Maidenhead Festival for the past two years. I really enjoyed being part of the team and helping it all come together for the local community. I have experience of organising events, albeit on a smaller scale via meetup, so I thought it would be great to join the organising team that helps to make the festival what it is... an amazing free event for the town to enjoy! I look forward to seeing you there this summer!
I have lived in Maidenhead all my life and through my job as Town Manager have got involved with loads of great community events and got to know lots of people who are doing amazing things for the town in their own time. The Festival Committee works tirelessly throughout the year to make sure the town has it’s own community Festival that’s free for everyone to enjoy. We hope you have a great time at this year’s event and spread the word to everyone to come and join us.
Hello Wembley.....I mean Maidenhead....I am Jonny Walker :)

I am excited to introduce to you all the great acts that we have to offer & to party with you guys in the evening.

As a proud resident of the community for more than 50 years, I am thrilled to be part of the Maidenhead Festival Team.
I moved to Cookham in 1969 and have always been heavily involved in the community. For six Cookham Festivals, I served as Treasurer and Organizer of Volunteers. Since my move to Maidenhead in 1994, I became the Membership Secretary for the Maidenhead Civic Society and have held that position for over a decade, playing an active role in organizing events for our members.
Prior to retiring, I worked as a company accountant based in Marlow, working for a leading international distribution company.
I am really happy to be part of the Maidenhead Festival Team as The Maidenhead Civic Society have taken part in the festival for a number of years.
.I’ve been involved with the festival almost since it began and am a former chairman of the event in its previous incarnation as Maidenhead Carnival.
For my day job I’m the Editor of the Maidenhead Advertiser, where I’ve worked for the best part of three decades, but I’m also involved in lots of other community organisations such as Rotary and the Talking Newspaper Association.
Maidenhead Festival is a fantastic event that brings enjoyment to so many people and is a brilliant thing to be involved in.
My day job as Manager of The Nicholsons Centre puts me at the heart of the community and what a fantastic community we have in Maidenhead!
The annual Festival is such a fabulous event and I am delighted to be part of a great committee that works all year to deliver this amazing free event for those who live, work and visit our town to enjoy.
See you in July!
Hiya, I first got involved in Maidenhead Festival 2 years ago through Maidenhead Bridge Rotary.
I was very new to Maidenhead at that time, volunteering at the Festival helped me to familiarise with the community and connect me with the locals! I liked the idea of 'organised for the community, by the community' and was very impressed that there were so many volunteers dedicated to bettering the world!
I want to give back to the community and learn from the brilliant locals, hence I became one of the organising team members. I'm looking forward to collaborating with the team and different business parties to make Maidenhead Festival even stronger.
I can't wait to see you in July!
