Don’t let BURYFields get buried

AFTER one of the worst years in living memory, it’s time to look ahead to brighter days and happier times and the return of the beloved and beautiful BURYFields festival.

For BURYFields, like so many other things, has been devastated by the effects of the global Covid-19 pandemic. Because of coronavirus and the lockdowns and social distancing rules as well as not holding the festival itself, it has not been able to host its regular fundraising events such as Silent Disco, live gigs and its popular annual Guilty Pleasures Christmas party.

This has had a devastating effect on the coffers of BURYFields which, as an entirely self-funded community event, relies on its fundraisers and local support to keep things moving when it comes to booking bands and performers, pay contractors etc ahead of the big event each year. Ongoing year round costs have drained what remaining funds were left in the kitty after the last BURYFields, number six, in 2019.

To this end, the BURYFields team have decided to ask for help from the very people who partake in its pleasures  every time by asking us all to support its crowd funding plea and help raise funds for its next round of musical fun and frolics in June 2021 or 2022, dependent on the ongoing nature of the pandemic and its effect on the music industry.

Businesses and punters alike are invited to put their hands in their pockets and help keep our wonderful festival going. All donations are welcome, no matter how small, to help keep BURYFields and our cultural wellbeing alive.

Since 2013, BURYFields has been wowing festival goers of all ages, shapes and sizes with some of the biggest names in music and comedy including such luminaries as Tom Robinson, The Wonder Stuff, This Is The Kit, CC Smugglers, The Selecter, Goldie Lookin’ Chain, Dub Pistols, The Blockheads, Dodgy, Space, Russell Kane, Ardal O'Hanlon, Arthur Smith and Zoe Lyons among many others.

Dig deep and help us ensure the future of our much-loved BURYFields festival.  We have a range of rewards on offer, plus every supporter will receive a snazzy window sticker to help spread the love
