March Lions Gala

Ever since the unfortunate news last year that the March Summer Festival would not go ahead we have been planning, and today we are pleased to announce that the March Lions Gala WILL go ahead in 2024.

On Saturday 29th June, between 11am and 4pm, we will be hosting a wide array of stalls on West End Park.

If you are interested in booking a stall at this event there is still availability. Stalls cost £20 for businesses and £10 for charities, and can be booked by emailing Lion Jenny Webb at, or by filling in the form linked below:

March Lions Club have hosted the gala in many different forms for almost 50 years, with it taking its current form at the creation of the March Summer Festival in 2000. Previously the gala (or carnival) has been held on the Football Ground and the Hereward School Playing Field, and has also included a large parade through the town.

Most importantly, the Gala gives local small businesses and charities an opportunity to reach a greater number of people at a single event. For some, it is their largest fundraiser every year.

The event’s success, however, comes down to the great support it gets from the people of March (though good weather helps!!). Without this support the Gala wouldn’t still be going after so many years! Thank You!!
