Under the Town Police Clauses Act 1847- Section 21,  between the hours of 09.00 and 18.30 Commercial Street, Charles Street (from the bollards leading down onto Commercial Street) and Corn Street will be closed to traffic.

Thank you for your support and we hope that you enjoy the event!



Would you like to volunteer with us?

We are looking for lovely people aged 18+ who can help in the week running up to the festival to help dressing and the event organisation and give information out to the general public during the Big Splash festival.

If you like meeting people,  love performance and/or would like to support the festival and show Newport in it’s best and friendliest light then we’d love to hear from you.

If you would like to help or want more information, please email by the 8 June.

Volunteers from all backgrounds are warmly encouraged. If you have any access issues then please let us know.

The festival is an accessible event and we  are particularly keen to hear from volunteers who have experience of working with or supporting Deaf and disabled people to ensure we remain accessible to all.
