Special Thanks in 2017

We could not have done it without you...


Great Ellingham Village Store & Post Office  The shop is an integral part of our success. You can find a warm and friendly face to keep you posted on bear and garage sale registration, art exhibition ticket sales and of course, the trail guide. 

The Crown Pub.  This year held a fun BBQ & Auction in the back garden. Much fun was had. Will & company helped us raise over £600 for the festival. 

Pen & Mouse Design.  The 2017 logo and map were designed by Laura Garka. We're so excited to have a fresh, modern update.

Vicki Bell. Special thank you to our 2017 co-chair who has decided to step down from her role after 2 years. Your fellow committee members know all the hard work and contributions you have made to the festival.

These are the amazing businesses and people who contributed prizes to our 2017 raffles, auctions and award winning bears. Thank you for your generosity.

2017 Committee & Volunteers

There are so many people who make the Teddy Bear Festival a success. From storing supplies, setting up tent, hanging signs to manning tea tents, we would not be able to do it without your help.
