This year we’ll be supporting Stockcross Village and Newbury & District Cancer Care Trust
Stockfest 2018 – 12th to 19th August
Welcome to our Stockfest Website! This is the 6th year Stockfest is running and the Stockfest Committee has put together another superb program this year with lots of new events. We have live music, a car boot sale, opera, singing classes, a film night, talks on gardening and acupuncture, tours of The Dog’s Trust and Benham Estate and an amazing auction which will sell some exceptional prizes such as two veteran car experiences with lunch, David Lloyd family membership, a Solent cruise and champagne lunch for 6 among many many more events. Many events have limited numbers of tickets and we would love you to book tickets before Stockfest18 begins and make offers for the auction items online!
We are opening a pub, The Inn On The Glebe, during Stockfest but it will be open for a special evening on Monday 6th August at 6.30pm to Launch Stockfest18 to journalists, senior staff from West Berks Council, the Mayor and people who have donated items for auction or our raffle. We very much hope Stockcross Villagers can come along to this launch to enjoy the pub and show support for this exciting festival.
For the first time Stockfest is supporting both Stockcross and a local charity, Newbury and District Cancer Care Trust. Money raised during Stockfest18 will be used towards future Stockfests and to benefit the Village Hall and the Church. We have described more about the excellent work the Newbury and District Cancer Care Trust does for local residents under the About Us tab where there is also a link to their website. We would welcome donations to Stockfest18 which will go directly towards all these causes. Details of how to donate are on the ‘Donate’ tab on this website.
I am delighted we have received so much support for Stockfest ! I would like to thank West Berkshire Parish Council who made a generous financial donation to Stockfest18 and thank The Greenham Trust who will double all donations up to a certain limit. There has been huge support for Stockfest18 from the members of the Committee organising this festival, Dawn Robins, Maryon Lawry, Venetia Dunlop, Felicity Merchant, Steve Kirby and Edward & Sue Van Dyke. Committee members have put in countless hours organising Stockfest18 and we couldn’t have run the festival without their help. Members of the Committee are detailed in the ‘Committee’ tab but I would encourage you to have a look at that tab and personally thank the members of the Committee when you see them during various events !
Enjoy Stockfest and many thanks for your support !
