Little Treasures to sponsor Kids’ Village

We are really pleased to announce that Little Treasures toy shop will sponsor the Kids’ Village at Redfest 2016.

Little Treasures is an independent toy shop right next to St George Park, offering a wide range of party bag and pocket money toys, as well as craft kits and wooden toys. It’s priced so that kids can go in and spend their own pocket money on stuff, so that they can get exactly what they love and learn about the value of money at the same time.

This is the first time that a brand has specifically sponsored an area of the festival and it shows how we can work with our sponsors to tailor make a package that works for them. So if you have a business and would like to discuss ideas about how you could be affiliated with Bristol’s best free festival and reach an audience of many thousand potential new customers, email info@redfestbristol.co.uk and we’d love to discuss options with you.

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.

Hooray for Grounded, our first headline sponsor

Grounded Cafe Redfield are a long time supporter of Redfest Bristol, and we are really pleased that they’ve come on board this year as our first headline sponsor.

There are a million reasons to love Grounded – they’ve got the best pizza on Church Road, a lovely little garden, really nice veggie options on their menu as well as hearty meat, they do great takeaway coffee early in the morning right near the bus stop into town, and many more. But most of all we love how they support the local arts with lots of gigs by local bands and frequently changing exhibitions by local artists.

Not to mention of course that they help support Redfest every year with much-needed funds. We don’t charge for entry to festival so we rely on generous support from sponsors such as Grounded to help cover the costs of essential stuff like toilets, power, and generators.

Help keep Redfest free

St George Park, where Redfest happens, is full of beautiful trees – but unfortunately, money does not grow on them! And the costs of putting on a festival are rising each year. So Redfest relies on the generosity of local people to keep us the best free festival in Bristol.

If you’re a business and would like to sponsor us, you can email for more information. We have lots of different options and can even tailor-make a sponsorship package to suit you. Look who’s already got their brand linked with Redfest (are any of them your competitors?!).

We also gratefully accept donations from anyone who enjoys the festival: you can donate with a credit or debit card, or through PayPal, by clicking on the “donate” button that you’ll see on every page of this website. You could also throw some cash into one of our buckets at a fundraising event or at the festival itself.

We love everyone who comes to Redfest, but we especially love people who donate! And if you’re in the local area, please think about giving your business to one of our wonderful sponsors or partners. We couldn’t do it without them.
