The Summer Moon Festival is run under the auspices of Kingskerswell Summer Moon Trust (Registered Charity No.1141844).
Kingskerswell Summer Moon Trust was established with the aim of running a beer and music festival that would provide entertainment for the local community as well as raise funds for local charities, community groups and deserving causes.
The Trustees owe a huge debt of gratitude to many:- Bays Brewery who have sponsored each of the Festivals and the ever growing band of local businesses who have agreed to sponsor a barrel of beer or advertise with us, the many volunteers who help at the event and to the people of Kingskerswell and nearby villages who have braved the often inclement weather to support the Festival over the years.
The Festival raised over £11,000 at the 10th Annual Festival held 22- 24 June 2017, having raised £104,000 for local charities and community groups over the previous nine years. That makes a grand total of over £115,000 raised during the last ten years.
The Summer Moon Trustees disburse the profits of the annual festival in the Autumn following the event. The Trustees are pleased to consider all applications from local charities, community groups and good causes. The closing date for grant applications is 31 July in the same year as the festival.
If you would like your favourite local charity or good cause to benefit from Summer Moon fundraising, you can apply using a grant application form, which is available for you to download here in Word format. An example of how to complete the application form is available in PDF format download here. If you have any difficulty with either of the download documents, please contact us.
Don’t forget that the closing date for grant applications is on 31 July following the last festival.
