RMHB Fest 2019 will provide 100 nights of accommodation and support for families in need.
The 1st June saw the return of RMHB Fest to Old Down Country Park and we were yet again treated to some amazing sunshine for our family fun event. Events like this keep our doors open and with your help we have raised £3,500 which equates to 100 nights of accommodation and support in our home from home!! Thank you so much to everyone that attended and helped to reach this amazing total.
We couldn’t have done it without the help of a lot of wonderful people and businesses.
Huge thanks go to:
Our headline sponsors Harvey Shopfitters
Brothers Cider for donating drinks for our bands
Factory Studios for donating a back line for our stage
King Sound for the amazing stage once again
Our fantastic security team from Mike Cross
Our incredible stage manager and sound engineer Jack
It wouldn’t have been a festival without our bands and we were treated to some fantastic music from Bartie Joyce, The Hogranch, The Fab Twins, Ellie Moonshine and the Prohibition Band, Nightlarks, Eddie Mole and Jack Skuse. We also had some amazing stalls selling a range of goodies from home decor and jewellery to gifts and cakes, thank you so much to all of you for coming along.
Our thanks are not over just yet as we also have our amazing volunteers to thank! We had help from some fantastic people from McDonald’s, The Co-Op, Lloyds Bank and our wonderful supporters both in the run up and at the event itself, with special thanks going to our ambassador Marianne and long term volunteer Lincoln. On the day, the festival was run by volunteers helping in our car park, on the gates, manning our own stalls, face painting, putting on activities, running the stage and assisting with finance. We also had great help in the run up too and would like to thank Alex who kindly volunteered himself and his van to help us get everything we needed to the festival. Without them we honestly could not have done it and we are so very grateful to each and every one of you for your incredible support!
