First of all, thank you for your fantastic support during previous festivals, from the first one in 2008 until our 10th anniversary last year. We’re now excitedly planning our next festival, which will be held from 21 – 23 June 2018, and once again it will be held on the Parish Meadow at Kingskerswell.
With your amazing help, we have already raised over £115,000 for local charities and good causes! So, in 2018 please don’t miss the opportunity to help us achieve even more incredible success.
As you will see from the detailed information on our other pages, the “Night at the Proms” concert will take place on the evening of Thursday 21 June 2018, followed by the main Beer and Live Music festival on Friday 22 June and Saturday 23 June 2018.
People tell us that it’s a ‘great little festival’, it’s on a smaller scale than most, more suited to the size of our village. Visitors and volunteers alike tell us that it is brilliant. It has a very special, relaxed atmosphere, with a feeling of fun whilst safe and proving to be good value for money.
There’s plenty of exciting music, delicious locally produced food and plenty of space to be with friends and family. All that, plus tasty beers, ciders and wines served quickly at the bar by a large band of happy volunteers from the local community.
Why not take a few minutes to look around our website and see what is on offer – we know that you, your family and friends will have a fantastic time with us. So please don’t miss the opportunity to come along.
Whatever the weather, our festival goes ahead as we have large marquees for the beer and entertainment and, of course, all the other facilities you would expect.
Whether you are one of our regulars or a first time visitor, we hope you will join us in celebrating the festival’s community spirit and be proud to help raise money for local charities and good causes.
This year we bid a fond farewell to our local vicar, who is retiring after 45 years service. We wish him a long, healthy and happy retirement. Whether a church goer or local resident, the vicar has had a huge impact upon our community during the 29 years he’s been here. In fact, amongst all the other fantastic things he has done, it was his idea to have a beer and music festival on the Parish Meadow; without him Kingskerswell Summer Moon simply would not have started at all! We wholeheartedly thank our vicar for your loving kindness, support and enthusiasm (some may have called it chaos!) across our area and beyond. We love you, you’re a legend!
Anyway, we look forward to seeing you in June 2018 and hope you have a fantastic time!
