About Us

Thelwall Rose Queen Festival is organised by a small Committee of enthusiastic volunteers, to provide a fun-filled day with a lovely ‘village’ feel. We meet eight times a year at Thelwall Parish Hall and are always on the look-out for more members. Why not come along to the next meeting - it’s a great way to get involved in the community and make new friends. Membership is open to all village residents, or anyone involved with staging Rose Queen Day.

A lot of work goes into planning an event like this, but the more volunteers we have the more like fun it is and less like work. If you can help, you don’t have to come to meetings - you can just work behind the scenes.  

Please contact us ( or come to the next planning meeting.
