Record amount raised this year!
It’s all over and what a great festival it was!
What ever I do I always feel really sad after our little festival finishes. ... As always I was amazed at how successful it all was and how kind and helpful everyone has been and am still being overwhelmed with the positive comments from people both to me personally and on Facebook. The photos are just brilliant and really capture the enjoyment of everyone who came. ... I want to thank each and every one of you for making this another brilliant year. The most important people are you and it just couldn’t be done otherwise. (Lynne)
Big thanks to Lynne & everyone for having us play at Boarsbridge this weekend and for making us feel so welcome & for the terrific response and lovely comments to our performance. We absolutely loved it & it was a real pleasure! ... I'm still glowing from it…literally! (Mark Nelson)
As always, it was a lovely weekend. Boars Bridge is now my favourite festival, because it is so friendly, giving, and sharing - much like the organiser and her fabulous team. Waiting a whole year to do it all again will be difficult, but in the meantime huge thanks to Lynne for making it all happen. (Steve Robinson)
Fantastic weekend. Great new friends and brilliant atmosphere. Well done Lynne and everyone involved. Hope it raised loads of money! (Anthony McNulty)
What an absolutely brilliant, chillin' little festival this is. Brilliant beer, marvellous music, passionate people, stunning sunshine. Says it all. A great big thank you to all those involved in making Boar's Bridge the Beautiful Beast that she is. (Lefty Wright)
Lisa and myself would like to say a Massive thank you to Lynne and everyone at Boars Bridge for a fantastic festival, we had a great time playing a few tunes on Sunday - it all went by in a flash! (Guy, Dragonfly Rhythms)
it just gets better all the time, last night we thought the tent would take off with all the thunderous applause, especially during the Mark Nelson trio's performance. Thanks to everyone who made it such a great event especially Lynne and Mike. (Patricia Webb)
A huge thank you to Lynne, Mike and everyone who was involved with organising and running of the 2015 Festival, to all the fabulous performers and to the good weather angels who were smiling on us this year (even tho it was pouring with rain a few miles away). It was the bestest ever festival this year. (Helen Young)

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.
