This summer’s edition of Hampshire’s largest festival, BoomTown Fair raised £98,654 for several nearby and worldwide charities along with essential aid and awareness.

Charity, education, awareness, along with nearby engagement, are a massive element of the ethos of Boomtown and the 60,000 capacity theatrical and immersive festival also donated money to regional communities, supported a lot of nearby firms and supplied tickets for neighborhood residents. 

The new Speakers’ Corner welcomed a variety of talks including a drug awareness message from Wendy Teasdil, the mother of Ellie Rowe Maisie Williams discussing the developing refugee crisis and formal education Jess Thom speaking about living with Tourettes, as properly as The White Ribbon Campaign launching their Secure Event Guide advertising awareness of sexual harassment and assault of ladies at events.

Dave Boardman from the White Ribbon Campaign mentioned, “BoomTown Fair in Hampshire, one particular of the UK’s greatest and brightest festivals, is top the way with employees and volunteer training, data on how festival goers and others can support alleviate the issue and hopefully reduce down on incidents.”

The festival has numerous techniques to raise money and help such as £2 ticket donations, guest list donations, stewarding partnerships, onsite installations, a platform for awareness raising talks at their Speakers’ Corner talks tent, and post event salvage operations such as eight bags of unclaimed clothing have been donated to Trinity Winchester.

Support for refugees included:

  • A group of regional neighborhood volunteers from Twyford collected 160 sleeping bags, 85 tents, 58 roll mats, 13 self-inflating mats, 17 rugs/blankets, plus quantities of miscellaneous clothing, shoes and wellies, canned food, pots and pans, lamps, pumps and chairs – all of which were donated to L’Auberge des Migrants in the Calais Jungle.
  • Really like Support Unite raised £2,410.
  • Assist Refugees raised £500 by way of their festival-wear stall, promoting unsuitable clothes that had been donated to their warehouse in Calais.
  • Refugee Community Kitchen raised £280.
  • Festival Waste Reclamation and Distribution collected tents, sleeping bags, camping chairs, sleeping mats and clothing for Syria with the Portsmouth based Dont Hate Donate charity.

This year BoomTown matched the guestlist donations to generate £10,000 which will be split amongst the parishes bordering the festival site to invest in projects to advantage their communities, and Hampshire Air Ambulance had been donated £7,255 through the ongoing stewarding partnership.

In the months prior to the festival the BoomTown KidzTown team held free of charge household carnival workshops at the Discovery Centre for Winchester families alongside local charities Naomi Residence and Blue Apple theatre, where the youngsters get to showcase their costumes and newly developed expertise at the festivals’ Sunday KidzTown carnival.

Neighborhood businesses were supported by the festival like a variety of nearby Meals Traders, and Hampshire primarily based Marketplace Traders made up 15% of the festival’s market stall holders.  £46,380 was raised for Oxfam through the stewarding partnership, with a additional £15,000 raised by means of their district themed Oxfam Shop, located in Mayfair Avenue. The multi-charity beneficiary stewarding organisation, My Lead to also accrued £5,165 for a variety of UK primarily based and international charities.

The festival also supported worldwide charities which includes the TEMWA Charity who ran the festival’s onsite Lost and Identified for which BoomTown donated £5,000 towards the charity and a further £500 was raised through grateful festival goers providing donations for getting reunited with their belongings! The develop crew from the South American styled location, Barrio Loco, raised £1,640 for Alianza Arkana, a ground-breaking grassroots project operating with indigenous communities in the Amazon in Peru whose way of life is below threat from growing development and industrialisation.

The year’s environmental initiative with Power Revolution led to 72,000kg of Co2 emissions accounted for by means of travel carbon offsetting ticket donations of £3,600. Boomtown also teamed up with Enjoy Your Tent to bring a new initiative for the festival this year, with the notion of giving cheap ‘disposable’ tents much more sentimental value to encourage men and women to take duty for their belongings and take them property.

Purple Neighborhood Fund, raised £489 promoting their handbags, belts and jewellery made from ring pulls. In addition to the funds they also collected 5kg of ring pulls.

BoomTown Directors Lak Mitchell and Chris Rutherford, said, “It is a privilege to be a position to be capable to support so many charities, locally and across the globe, the dramatic increase in funds raised that we can achieve in one particular year alone, is astounding. We appear forward to the future and raising even much more income, awareness and supplies for the now important function several of these charities are fulfilling.”

Boomtown continues to function closely with the regional community, listening to feedback and implement alterations and applying policies to guarantee the disruption caused by the festival on the neighborhood community is minimised.

BoomTown are at the moment on the lookout for their major charity companion for the 2017 occasion and are hunting for Winchester or Hampshire based charities, to apply or make a suggestion contact

BoomTown Chapter 9: ‘Behind the Mask’ will return to the Matterley Estate in the South Downs National Park from Thursday 10th to Sunday 13th August 2017. Tickets go on sale at 7pm on Tuesday 1st November, and eFestivals will have links to get them then.
