The Alresford Music Festival is a one day music event showcasing a diverse range of music styles from both established and emerging local talent.
Entering the 8th year of the Alresford Music Festival, work is on to create an event that takes this ‘community festival’ concept to another level. First dreamed up in 2007 by Alresford resident Ken Veitch as an idea to raise money for local charities, the first Alresford Music Festival had been three years in the planning. Based on the concept of the 3 yearly Eric Clapton Crossroads Festivals benefiting good causes, Veitch thought the idea should be applied here in the UK, and here in Alresford. Teaming up with fellow musician Brian Hayward they researched how to make the dream a reality. Tapping into their local contacts, the festival slowly took shape and, with just a few weeks to go, the team has grown to include many dedicated volunteers and numerous professionals and companies hired for the day.
Amayzed became involved when the organisers were looking to incorporate a dedicated free family area for everyone to enjoy throughout the day, The team at Amayzed put together a range of family entertainment which included a silent disco, bungee trampolining, climbing wall, craft stalls, magic show, art workshops, storytelling, street theater, a memory pod, pool ball and much more.
