Sadly, due to the coronavirus pandemic, we have had to cancel the 2020, 2021 and 2022 festivals.
Kingskerswell Summer Moon Festival is a volunteer run charity festival that showcases all that is best in South West beers and ciders, all sampled to the accompaniment of talented local bands and musicians.
The festival is organised by dedicated committee members, all working on a voluntary unpaid basis, drawn mainly from the villages of Kingskerswell and Coffinswell. Every member of the committee is very proud of the festival and the fact that it is run entirely by volunteers. Each committee member brings knowledge, skills and experience of their varied careers to the many hours of preparatory work, organisation and meetings that make our festival the envy of other local communities. Indeed, some people suspected that it has been run by a commercial organisation or that a professional team was employed to manage it. None of this is true!!
Aiding the committee is an army of volunteers that at festival time help to prepare the site, run the car park, staff the bars, tidy the site and much, much more. All of these people are unpaid and give their time willingly to help ensure the village can be proud of its festival and surroundings.
The festival is very fortunate to be supported by a number of community minded local businesses. They help in a variety of ways: by sponsoring a barrel of beer, providing their services free of charge, advertising the festival and sponsoring some of the costly printing and other bits and pieces that are needed to make the event run successfully and in a professional way whilst maintaining all the fun of a village festival. This commitment from local business people helped to make sure that we keep our running costs as low as possible and maximise the money that we are able to raise for charity.
Then there is you. None of the success that we have enjoyed over the the past 11 years (2008 – 2019) would have been possible without your continued support. THANK YOU!
