Welcome to our Festival Newsletter library. Newsletters are published throughout the year starting with our theme announcement in November. From April, these are sent to registered organisers every fortnight, they contain the latest information about organiser materials, helpful advice about organising events as well as key dates about Organiser Clinics.   

You don't need to have your event already planned to be part of our organiser community, register your interest to take part by clicking here - choose the "I would like to receive the Festival of Archaeology event organiser newsletter" to receive all the materials and guidance you need for your event - from ideas to delivery and evaluation.

Learn how to publicise your event, risk assess and allow photography as well as top tips on venue choice and making your event accessible.  

You can offer advice to others or ask questions via our Community Forum section in the newsletter.

For organisers joining part way through the year - the catalogue of this year's newsletters is available here.
