Ravensknowle Children's Gala

Ravensknowle Children's Gala committee have been working towards staging a Gala in 2021. Reluctantly and after lengthy consideration we have sadly decided not to hold a Gala in 2021. The next Gala will beheld on Sunday June 26th 2022

Become a Friend of Ravensknowle Children's Gala

As you are aware, we have had to cancel this years Gala due to the Covid-19 virus restrictions. Even though we cancelled this years Gala we still need to raise funds so that hopefully we will be able to bring you an extra special event in 2022. To help raise funds we are launching Friends of Ravensknowle Gala.

For a regular monthly donation of at least £2 we can offer:

1. A newsletter twice a year with up to date information on Gala activities.

2. Free or discounted entry to Gala events.

3. A free entry on our famous Tombola stall on Gala day and Xmas Fayre

4. A free Gala wristband (small size)

To join please scroll down and use the donate button. You will need a Paypal account to make a regular donation.

If however you wish to just make a one off donation of any amount without becoming a Friend we accept most cards on our secure site.

Whilst the Gala has been cancelled for this year you are still able to donate money to ensure that the Gala continues in future years. Please scroll down to the donate button. You can either make a one off or regular donation.

About the Gala

The Ravensknowle Children's Gala is a non-profit organisation and was first held in Ravensknowle Park in 1927. Our aims have remained broadly the same since that date - to provide a free tea and a free days entertainment.

Each child between the age of 4 -14 who live in the Gala area is entitled to a 'tea' on Gala day. In the weeks before the event our volunteers call on each household in the area to distribute 'tea tickets' free of charge. The tickets can be exchanged on Gala day for a pre-packed 'tea' which usually consists of a piece of fruit, sweets and a drink.

Everyone can enjoy the free entertainment we provide with many acts on stage and in our large arena. There is no admission charge to the Gala. Although we now also provide a number of attractions that do make a charge it’s still possible to have a great day at the Ravensknowle Children's Gala without spending a penny.
