About the festival
Boars Bridge Festival is a Charity music festival held over a weekend each year in mid-June.
The 3 day event is held in the lovely grounds of Boars Bridge House near Tadley, Hampshire and although it is a relatively small festival the atmosphere is always lively and fun.
It is greatly appreciated the artists who waive their fees and expenses and it all adds to the much-needed funds! Also thanks to the many volunteers and suppliers who help make the festival such a success!
In addition to the music on the main stage there is a “Buskers Corner” in the bar / traders tent for anyone who feels the need to burst into song!
We have, of course, the necessary BEER from the Rebellion Beer Co. and sell snacks and food.
We have therapists on site as usual to do indian head massage, reflexology and reiki.
For those of you who wish to stay overnight, (which is highly recommended!) we have an area alongside for camping. Campervans can also be accommodated.
