The current Festival committee started organising the Festival back in 2015. Previously there was a similar event run by the Haydon Hunt.
The Festival is held in the ground of Haydon Bridge United Football Club and takes place within a large grassland area, with plenty of outdoor space to enjoy the atmosphere, a few drinks from our bar and some food from our fantastic caterers. We have a large marquee which houses the bar and the stage area where several bands will perform throughout the day.
Since the Festival started in 2015 we have donated around £20,000 to charities and local good causes.
Who organises the Festival?
The Festival is organised by a committee of 5 individuals from Haydon Bridge, working with various groups in Haydon Bridge to arrange the event.
Where do the profits of the Festival go?
All monies raised by the Festival are donated to local charities and good causes. The aim of the Festival Committee is to utilise wherever possible local suppliers, entertainers and services from the village of Haydon Bridge and it’s surrounding areas.
Are dogs permitted at the Festival?
The Football Club have asked that no dogs be permitted to the site unless they are guide dogs.
Can we bring our own food and drinks?
Only food and drink purchased at the Festival may be consumed at the event.
