Welcome to MarshFest Recut

Saturday 11th September, 3pm-late

Are you joining us for MarshFest Recut 2021?

We’re so excited to welcome you back to the fun-filled, family-friendly festival set in the fresh air of:

Marshfield Cricket Club/Broadleys, Ashwicke Road, Marshfield, SN14 8AB

We’re doing things a bit differently for 2021. So, we’ve re-worked the MarshFest experience.

You can still expect the magic of MarshFest, and this year it’s distilled into a fun-packed afternoon and evening, promising great music from six live bands, family-friendly fun, delicious local food and drink all set outside in the beautiful Marshfield countryside.

Keep in touch with all the latest news on our Facebook page.

Can we ask a favour?

If you are able to, please could you buy your tickets in advance? Not only are they cheaper for you, ticket sales will also help us to put on the best possible event after a challenging year. Remember, every penny we make after running costs goes towards supporting good causes and we’re committed to making this as brilliant as we can.

This year’s good causes

We’re proud to have raised over £5,000 for good causes through MarshFest.

This year is no exception – buy a ticket for MarshFest Recut and you’ll be raising funds for the following:

Warmley Park School and College is just down the road from Marshfield. Warmley Park is for children aged 3-19 with severe learning difficulties, profound and multiple difficulties, and those on the Autistic Spectrum. The school relies on donations and every penny helps.

Marshfield C of E V C Primary School is Marshfield’s local primary. Its PTA provides important funds for the school and the pandemic has allowed very limited opportunities for fundraising. The PTA also provides us with the majority of MarshFest’s volunteers who are vital to help the festival run.

Marshfest is a not for-profit organisation. Every last penny of money made goes back to our charities. We don’t carry any cash over to the next year so every year we have to work from scratch –at not inconsiderable risk to our credit cards!

Apart from making sure you have the tickets before they sell out, buying online ahead of the day gives us that much needed cash flow. The more we have in the coffers before the event, the more we can give to charity and also ensure we can deliver the quality event that you expect. We have a well tested wet weather plan, so rain or shine – we’re on! So please, if you know you’re coming, please book now!
