Want to Contribute?

We don’t sell tickets to our festival as it’s by private invite only and free, however if you’d like to contribute then we’d really appreciate it and £20 per adult should do it.  It will go towards the music line up including an organised barn dance, country funk band and DJ.  Any amount that you donate over £20 per adult, will go towards our ‘India Rose Carolina’ charity below.  You can contribute using the button below (on mobile) or to the left (on desktop) or the QR code below:

India Rose Carolina

This year in the morning, for those that wish to attend, there will be a ceremony and celebration of India Rose Carolina McDonnell, who passed from Cancer in February, aged 5.  India loved music and life, and boy, did she live it.

As India’s Godparents we will carry her bravery and wild lust for life for the rest of our lives.

In the afternoon, this year and every year, our festival will be in honour of India – our way of marking her memory.


This year we’re raising funds for The Nicklaus Children’s Hospital Foundation, a special place that became India’s home from home.  The money raised from our festival will go towards supporting families and the carers and hospital staff who give so much of themselves in supporting the superhero children in the Paediatric Oncology ward AKA ‘6 Tower’.

Please get behind us in raising as much money as possible.
