During the current Coronoavirus pandemic, if you can help the charities that Summer Moon has helped in the past (see Trust page) please do so, whether by volunteering, giving a donation or simply by showing your support and appreciation for their work. 

Please also show your appreciation to our sponsors (many of whom are small businesses and sole traders) and caterers (some of whom are offering a takeaway service)

Thank you.


Unfortunately, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the Kingskerswell Summer Moon Trust is cancelling this year’s festival.

We have a responsibility to ensure we do not compromise anyone’s personal safety, remain a viable charity for the future and continue to support community groups through our wonderful festival.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you in the future. We are already planning next year’s festival between Thursday 17th June 2021 and Saturday 19th June 2021.

In the meantime, take great care and stay safe. 

Tony Johnson, Chairman

NOTE:  Information about the festival generally will remain on the website.  Please disregard any references to the 2020 festival dates, particularly the dates at the top of each page.  These dates will be removed soon.


A great little festival……

Thank you for your brilliant support during the June 2019 and 11 previous festivals.

With your amazing help, we have now raised over £153,000 for local charities and good causes!

Year by year, the festival seems to be popular and successful, our loyal visitors certainly don’t seem to miss the opportunity to help us raise even more money for local good causes and charities.  They enjoy themselves along the way too!

Our large band of happy volunteers from the local community are invaluable and highly valued.

As you will see from the detailed information on our other pages (when they are updated) the “Night at the Proms” concert traditionally takes place on the Thursday evening of the festival, followed by the main Beer and Live Music festival on the Friday evening and from 11am on Saturday.  We are already planning next year’s festival for 17-19 June 2021.

People tell us that it’s a ‘great little festival’, it’s on a smaller scale than most, which suits 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 good value for money.

There’s always loads of exciting music, delicious locally produced food and plenty of space to be with friends and family.

Why not take a few minutes to look around our website and see what is on offer each year– although we try to make the festival better (not bigger !) year on year.  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 that in the future you will join us in celebrating the festival’s community spirit and be proud to help raise money for local charities and good causes.

Tony Johnson, Chairman
