We’d like to ask for your help
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. We’ve never sold tickets as we want the weekend to be open to everyone.
After the last two years, we all need Staycation Live more than ever, so we’re very glad to be coming back to the park in August!
However, as the festival has grown 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! The only way we’re able to make it happen without charging an entry fee is by asking for donations for entry to Staycation Live on the way in, something that has worked well so far.
Most people we speak to are more than happy to pay something, but we know not everyone can afford the amount that some local festivals charge for attendance – £20 to £50 on average. A suggested donation makes sure the event can still happen, and that everyone can attend.
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, 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 in August!
See you all in the park!
