Welcome to Festival Spirit
Festival Spirit is a charity providing the full festival experience to young people who would not normally be able to attend and enjoy such an event due to life-limiting illness or disability.
We are passionate about helping people who never thought they could attend a festival safe in the knowledge that they will have the facilities, support and back up necessary for their condition.
We bring the equipment, the accommodation and help facilitate the care that is required for each attendee. Attendees bring and share the festival spirit.
Festival Spirit at WOMAD and Wilderness Festivals
Over the last ten years we have facilitated dozens of people with disability or life limiting illnesses to both WOMAD and Wilderness Festival. If you work for a music festival in the UK and would like to discuss us bringing the festival spirit to your event in 2022 please get in touch
Our accommodation on site is an amazing, specially adapted marquee with hard flooring, heating and electricity. We always position it close to disabled facilities such as showers and toilets.
We provide 'buddies' to assist guests and their carers to get around the festival site and to make the most of the weekend event, see bands and attend all the other exciting workshops and activities on offer.
Festival Spirit Presents...March Madness
Sadly we will not be attending any festivals in 2021. Many of those within our community are shielding and social distancing measures continue. Even if restrictions are lifted there is an unrealistic timescale by which to get carers organised. We feel that the risk of infection for vulnerable people will potentially still be too high for us to encourage mass gatherings.
We will be hosting our own online festival on the 20th March. March Madness will feature an array of disabled and non-disabled music artists, thought leaders, comedians and poets.
The first batch of performers and artists have now been confirmed and range from the rapper Kray-Z Legz to the Olympic gold medalist, Greg Searle MBE. The event is free for all to attend and tickets are now available from www.MarchMadness.co.uk
