Festive Lizards is a family run not for profit organisation.
Primarily, we organise over 300 volunteer stewards for Glastonbury Festival, plus a regular monthly Independent Market in Frome. With the proceeds of this, we buy equipment for carnival clubs or committees. Our remit is to concentrate on safety in carnival, in 2018 we did a free draw for 10 sets of radio equipment. Over the years we have purchased lighting, speakers, music systems, motors and PPE. Money is also donated to many different charities by sponsorship. We organise Road Closure training and for 2019 have managed to obtain funding from Cheltenham College to pay for 100 places to complete a Level 2 BTEC in Event Safety.
Many Event Organisers come to us asking for stewards, so we become the ‘middle man’, as all the work is offered to anyone in Carnival as a fundraiser.
