FAIRFEST SPONSORS

Huge thanks to all our amazing sponsors - without you this fantastic festival would not be possible ...big love!!

You can join in the fun too - Sponsor a Barrel and see your name and/or logo on one of our full size beer barrels, in pride of place at the bar all weekend. We only have a limited number of barrels so make sure you get in quick!

Or maybe you’re a bit more adventurous and would like to sponsor other parts of the festival ... perhaps the main stage or bouncy castles are more your thing, or even the toilets ... everyone will be paying them a visit at some point! Let us know below... every sponsor will appear on our website, be displayed at the festival and mentioned on our Facebook page.

THE SERIOUS BIT

Entry to FairFest is FREE all weekend. All we ask is that you enjoy the music and purchase your food and drink from the lovely local vendors inside the festival.

No food or drink can be brought into the festival site. Thank you for your co-operation.

Children's bouncy castles can be used with a wristband. These can be purchased from the festival and cost £3 per child for one day, or £5 per child for the whole weekend.

There may be charges/donations requested for other activities and these will be clearly displayed at the festival.

We're aiming for a 'zero single-use plastic' festival - you can help by purchasing a limited edition reusable FairFest cup for just £1. Bring it with you each day and refill it throughout the festival. Bring your FairFest 2019 cup and reuse it. Please note, all refills are full price. Cups provided by HappyCups.

All information about the festival will be published here and/or on our Facebook page as soon as it becomes available, but if you need any more details or would like to speak to the organisers please contact us.
