|Wittfest Charity Music Festival|
The Plough, Long Wittenham
Friday 13 June to Sunday 15 June 2014
Welcome to the 15th Annual Wittenham Free Charity Music Festival - "Wittfest" - in the grounds of the Plough Inn, Long Wittenham, near Didcot, Oxfordshire - the friendliest, most enjoyable, eclectic and entertaining small festival anywhere. Wittfest is a free music festival raising money for local charities. Everybody involved gives their time (and raffle prizes!) for free. There is a wide range of musical genres on offer and plenty of opportunity to join in with all of the themed sessions throughout the festival weekend.
Last year, the festival raised more than £3,300 which was divided equally between local charities Pets As Therapy and The Footsteps Foundation. This year we are supporting Pets As Therapy again, along with Young Dementia which works directly with younger people with dementia.
The festival starts on the Friday evening and runs until late Sunday afternoon. ADMISSION IS FREE, but programmes will be on sale, and we need people to buy lots of raffle tickets, badges, hats and shirts or simply give donations so we can support our chosen charities.
We have a children's play area and, being situated in the grounds of a riverside pub, loads of food and drink to hand! There will also be a second-hand bookstall, tombola and tea tent and of course the famous "The Mighty Quinn Plant Emporium".
It's no wonder that previous visitors to Wittfest have declared it the best small festival they have ever been to!
The website is currently undergoing some development so some of the content may not yet be complete but we'll soon have the latest details of the wonderful music in store.
Although the festival may continue in some form, the organising committee are standing down this year, so don’t miss what may be the last Wittfest as we know it!
