Celebrating Community

12th-14th May 2017

May 12th-14th 2017

As irreverent as it is inspirational, the endearingly eclectic YaxFest returns in 2017.  This massive FREE party is Cambridgeshire’s most exciting goodwill-powered family entertainment event. Truly a gathering that defies categorisation, the madcap mashup of culture, community, heritage and sports has entertained tens of thousands since its launch in 2013.

Throwing everything including the kitchen sink into the event, a team of volunteers on a mission have created a juggernaut that has become the benchmark for regional entertainment events. YaxFest is a music festival, a country show, a classic car meet, a funfair, a sports tournament, a heritage fair and so much more.

Join us in 2017 as once again we showcase local talent, provide family entertainment and celebrate our rich local history. Support our local community groups who will be looking to raise money and awareness and enjoy an unforgettable, fun-packed weekend.

Working with Little People UK

Little People UK was co-founded in January 2012 by actor Warwick Davis, his wife Samantha and a group of individuals with the same goal; to offer friendship and support to people with dwarfism, their families and friends, and help build a positive future for those individuals. Since its inception, Little People UK has become a registered charity and an essential resource for the social, medical and financial needs of the little people community in the UK. To date it has attracted almost 200 members, along with the support of highly respected Orthopaedic, Ophthalmic, Neurological and Anaesthetic consultant surgeons together with Physiotherapists and Educational practitioners, all of whom have a special interest in helping people with dwarfism.

It is lead by a voluntary committee of 12 and one member of staff, that relies on fundraising and generous donations. Its committee is made up of both people with dwarfism and average height individuals, making for a very fair and compassionate group who can meet the needs of everyone, ensuring friendship and support is provided, whilst raising awareness of people with dwarfism and celebrating with great pride and positivity little peoples contribution to society.

PRS for Music licences the use of copyright music across the UK, giving businesses and organisations the legal permission they need to play the music they want.  These licences ensure that music publishers, songwriters and composers are fairly rewarded with royalties so they can keep making music – and mean that we’re able to support music at events like this. For more information about PRS for Music or music licensing, visit www.prsformusic.com or call 0800 068 4828
