Home Farm Festival was first established in 2006 (called the Piers Simon Concert) as a fundraiser for the Piers Simon Appeal. Fast forward to 2019 and the event is celebrating its 14th year. It has grown considerably over that time: what started as a one-day event with three bands, is now become a three-day festival with 8 stages and over 150 performance slots! It's also raised over £405,000 for the Piers Simon Appeal and its main initiative School in a Bag, and this year brings in its first major band, Reef.
Home Farm Fest would not run without the generosity of everyone involved, donating their enthusiasm and time to a good cause and making it one of the hidden gems on the festival circuit. It's perfect for families and groups alike, first-time festival goers and festival stalwarts. It may be small in comparison to others, but it packs a big punch, and is sure to make you leave feeling happy!
