The gala is an annual event held on the pasture. It is organised by volunteers who formed the Cronton Gala Committee. The Parish Council is committed to supporting the committee and makes a annual grant towards the work they undertake. Fundraising takes place throughout the year with many events being organised. The gala is well attended and it is the highlight summer event in the village. More information can be found on the Cronton Gala Committee facebook page and below.

Committee Chair


The Cronton Gala Committee's aim is to raise funds to support community events. All funds raised by this brochure and other fundraising goes

towards future events including the Gala. Over the last 2 years we have run events such as Halloween parties, Santa's Grotto, Afternoon Teas,

Queen’s jubilee celebration, Easter Egg trail, run competitions such as the Scarecrow event and provided Easter Eggs and Biscuits for members

of our community. These are all funded from raffles, donations from the public and from various local businesses including Asda and Morrisons

who we are very grateful to, and by the Gala Committee, who all work on a voluntary basis.


The Cronton Gala committee are currently looking for volunteers
