Our charities this year

This year Staycation Live Festival will be supporting, not one, but four charities! Each and every one is truly amazing in what they do and the support they provide to those who need it the most. Over the next few weeks we’ll share a bit more about each of our chosen charities and the wonderful work they do – keep checking back to find out more.

Donations for entry to Staycation Live

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!

With our 10-year anniversary event coming up, we’ve been thinking about some of our favourite moments over the last 9 events, and we’d love to hear about some of yours!

We’d like you to send us your favourite photos, your best memories, and your funny stories. Maybe you met the love of your life at the festival (one of us did!), or you found your favourite band. Do you meet up with lifelong friends every year, or is it your big weekend out of the year?

You can send us any photos using this Dropbox link, or email us your favourite memories to memories@staycationlivefestival.co.uk.

We’ll share the best ones and they’ll go into our anniversary brochure which will be available on the day!

Staycation Live is Back for 2022

Staycation Live is Back for 2022

Staycation Live is BACK for 2022!

It’s been a pretty tough couple of years and we’ve missed you lovely Staycationeers massively but we’re back for 2022 with our 10 years anniversary party!! We’ll be back in the park on the 6th and 7th of August.

The festival has brought many great and diverse acts to Godalming over the two stages set in picturesque Phillips Memorial Park and you can expect more of the same this year with an eclectic mix of acts and bands ranging from folk to funk, electro swing to mega folk and ska to hip-hop.

To keep you fuelled throughout the weekend you’ll find some of the best craft ales and cider from local brewers at our well-stocked bar and plenty of food including vegan options from some of the finest and tastiest traders

Staycation Live 2022 is a donation-based, pay what you feel festival that couldn’t take place if it wasn’t for the support we receive from you, our awesome Staycationeers 🙂  Please support the event and if you can afford it, stick a donation in the tin and help keep the festival going while supporting our chosen charity.

We’ll be announcing plenty of acts and getting you pumped up in preparation for this year’s festival on the usual social media channels so tune in on Facebook or Instagram for bang up to date info on this year’s festival.

We can’t wait to see you all in the park for 2022, it’s going to be an absolute banger, see you at the front!
