Staycation Live is sponsored by:

Suppliers of Concrete, Aggregates, Screed, and Muckaway Services

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 13 years ago because we wanted to give the people of Godalming something fun to do in their town. We aim for the weekend to be open to anyone that would like to attend.

All we ask is that you make the recommended donation on the way in each day. 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 cost over 1000 times that!), and we try and make it better and better every year, but we can only do that with your help.

This year we’re asking for £10 per adult per day. This isn’t a mandatory cost, but please remember that the festival can’t happen without these donations and we would need to start selling tickets without them.

And don’t forget, we donate 25% of the collection to our chosen charity each year. With your help we’ve donated over £22000 to some amazing causes, most of them very local.

We look forward to seeing you again for this year’s event!

Staycation Live Music Festival

in partnership with Godalming Town Council

Godalming Town Council Launched Staycation in 2010, a week-long programme of events and activities suitable for individuals, families and groups of all ages who live in Godalming and villages to enjoy. In 2011 Staycation Live Music Festival was introduced as a way to kick off the amazing week of events that Godalming Town Council organises every year. The Music festival wouldn’t happen without the help and support from the team at the Council.
