Where do any profits go?
The Anti Loo Roll Festival is organised by the Colchester Anti Loo Roll Brigade; a Community Interest Company (CIC) is a very costly festival to put on with basic infrastructure costs increasing each year, which is why we have made the decision to charge an entrance fee for the event from this our first year. Our profits from the event will be used to fund the projects that the ALB take on each week. Find out how you can support the Anti Loo Roll Brigade and the work they do here
