THE STORY OF VANN FEST
Vann Fest is a community driven festival celebrating movement, music, and soul healing. Set in the Surrey Hills, it's a grass roots, family gathering with locally sourced food, drink and talent; workshops for both children and adults, live music, comedy, and free camping...all in aid of The Royal Marsden.
Vann Fest is a charity festival and we have supported The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity from day one. Learn more about the important work, and groundbreaking research here.
Vann Fest started as a family party in 2013 shortly after the parents of Martin Miles, landowner, had been treated at The Royal Marsden. Late in the evening, someone got out the guitar, a hat was passed around, and a donation made to The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity. In 2015, Vann Fest opened its gates to the public for the first time for a weekend of music, and workshops for the whole family to enjoy. The festival has gone from strength to strength over the past ten years, and 2023 is set to be the best one yet!
Vann Fest is run entirely by volunteers who pour their love, sweat and (sometimes) tears into bringing you a fun filled family event. Meet the people people working behind the scenes here.
We hope you will join us on Vann Farm this year!
