We're back bigger and better than before!

On the back of the first event, held in 2015, where £25,000 was raised for this amazing charity, we are back by popular demand! The festival will consist of live music and a DJ set, with a well stocked bar, hot food catering - all in a field in the beautiful Hampshire countryside - what more could you ask for?

And all of this is to raise money for charity - so you can feel good about yourself, whilst enjoying yourself knowing that you are helping brave men and women who support all areas of bomb disposal, both overseas in war zones as well as in the UK where bomb disposal is just as relevant now as it was 50 years ago.

The Felix Fund is here to help any military or SO15 (Metropolitan Police Counter Terrorism Unit) personnel who have conducted or assisted with Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) and search duties and provide welfare support and financial assistance to serving and ex-serving military and their families.

The event is open to only over 18’s. If you are lucky enough to look younger than 18, please bring some sort of photo ID that shows your date of birth, otherwise I’m afraid we won’t be able to let you in.

There will be a Challenge 21 policy in place. If you are lucky enough to look under 21, valid photo ID will be required before access to the event is permitted. Acceptable forms of photo ID include a passport, a photo card driving licence, a proof of age card bearing the PASS hologram.

Hot Food will be sold on site.

There will also be food sold on Sunday morning as well as tea and coffee to refresh any weary souls.

As this is on working farmland, the land owners do not wish there to be any glass present. This is because it can injure the animals that have to graze the land after we’ve gone. This will be strictly controlled upon entry and any glass will be confiscated.

No open fires/disposable BBQs or gas camping stoves are permitted within the camp site.

As this is a charity event, anyone who wishes to volunteer for litter picking the following day is truly appreciated – just let us know when you arrive.

And finally...

Thank you for supporting these amazing and brave men and women who put their lives on the line. The event organizers thank you again for being part of this event and we do hope you have a great evening.
