See what you’ve got to look forward to…

We’re looking forward to welcoming you to our belated 10-year anniversary party! We really hope you can all make it down to enjoy it with us.

Staycation Live is sponsored by:

Suppliers of Concrete, Aggregates, Screed, and Muckaway Services

Axtell Ltd

A fantastic weekend of music, drink, entertainment and great food! I can’t rate it highly enough!! An amazing family-friendly event, Not to be missed!

Staycation Live can only happen with your generosity!

Please remember; Staycation Live is run by three local residents who started it 12 years ago because they wanted to give the people of Godalming something fun to do in their town. We’ve never sold tickets as we want the weekend to be open to anyone that would like to attend.

All we ask is that, if you’re able, you put a donation in the buckets on the way in. The festival has grown and it has become more and more expensive to put on (the first year probably cost us £50 and this year will likely cost at least 750 times that!),  and we try and make it better and better every year, but we can only do that with your help.

If you can afford it, this year we’re asking for £10 per adult but we’re more than happy with whatever you can afford! If you’ve got nothing to put in the bucket then we still want to see you in the park!

And don’t forget, we donate 25% of the collection each year to our chosen charity – with your help we’ve donated over £18000 to some great causes over the years.

We look forward to seeing you again for our 10 year anniversary event!
