Frilfest 2021 raises £6.5k

A family-friendly music festival, Frilfest took place on Saturday 21st August in Frilsham, bringing together a great range of live bands and artists and raising £6.5k

 The festival, which was attended by over 200 people, was organised by Trevor Goodall CEO.  With a lineup of four tribute bands and two original artists, there was plenty for everyone.  Bands included Oxford-based Indie Rock band ‘Jody and the Jerms’, contemporary RnB Sussex-based singer Xoe-B.  The headline act was Newbury-based tribute band ‘Trouble’ and with the characteristic Elvis moves and charm, got the crowd up dancing until the end of the night.   

Despite the lack of hot, balmy summer weather, friends and family enjoyed delicious food around a blazing firepit under the glow of a spectacular full moon.

‘It has never felt more important than now’, says CEO Trevor Goodall ‘to organise a fundraising event that brings everyone together to relax, have fun and enjoy mixing again after such a tough year.  The money raised by New Life Special Care Babies makes a difference to so many premature and seriously ill babies and their families. Much of the equipment bought for hospitals is either not readily available on the NHS or has a long lead time.’

Thank you to everyone who supported us. The music, food, drink and atmosphere were all fantastic.
