The Association of Festival Organisers (AFO) is a membership group of like-minded festival and event managers who believe in learning and teaching, sharing and networking to continuously improve the festival scene.
Created in 1987 with a small gathering of people working in the community festival business, it now has hundreds of members who regularly exchange ideas and support one another to help develop our sector.
If you have anything to do with festivals, Yes anything, you should join AFO.
