Old Stillage quiz raises much needed £££!

Well, what a crazy night last night, with the Stillage almost as busy as we have ever seen it, let alone on a Tuesday night! The pub and cafe were packed to the rafters and we had to borrow chairs from the Red Lion!
Thank you to everyone who came, especially the people who couldn’t get a seat because it was so crowded, and valiantly stood up all evening.
We raised an amazing £380, and every penny of it will go towards the 2016 festival.
Massive thank you to quizmistress Claire who did an amazing job organising, writing questions, sourcing prizes and of course the all-important microphone skills.

Another reason to <3 The Old Stillage!

Lovely food, great music and real ales… you might think the Old Stillage pub on Church Road already has everything it needs to be your favourite pub in Redfield or even the world. But then they only go and become our second headline sponsor and so there’s even more reason to love the pub and its landlord Nemo! (That’s him in the photo, by the way, standing proudly by the door.)

The Stillage is a long-time friend of Redfest, and last year hosted music during the day and a jam-packed after party in the evening where revellers and crew alike danced until we melted!

The “Behind the Bookcase” restaurant has recently been taken over by a new chef and you really should try the new menu, which includes absolutely delicious Sunday lunches and fantastic vegan and vegetarian options.

And don’t forget the pool table and comfy sofas… the Stillage is a great place to meet up with friends old and new, and if you see the Redfest team in there having one of our very important meetings, pop over and say hi.

We don’t charge for entry to festival so we rely on generous support from sponsors such as the Stillage to help cover the costs of essential stuff like toilets, power, and generators.

If you have a business and you’d like to find out more about supporting Redfest, email info@redfestbristol.co.uk and we’ll be happy to talk through details about the different ways you can help, the pricing range, and what you’ll get in return (as well as a warm fuzzy feeling).

If you’d just like to donate money you can do that using the PayPal donation button on every page of this website, and we will love you very much.

Vinyl AllStars fundraiser

It’s our first party of 2016, with Paul Moylan (Gumbo) dipping into his trunk of funk, suitcase of soul and valise of vinyl and playing raw soul, R&B, deep funk and a whole load more tunes to dance to… plus Redfest’s own steel wheel superstars Russ and Dermot with a jump-up mix of reggae, afrobeat and funk.

“Where’s it to me babber?”, we hear you ask – well, it’s happening at the Plough Inn, Easton, on March 4, from 8 till late. We’d love you to come and join us and dance, drink or do whatever makes you happy!

All proceeds go towards this year’s festival. Suggested donation £3 on the door.
