Bank Holiday weekend - 25th, 26th & 27th August 2018
SAVE THE DATE! The awesome Petersfield Summer Festival will most definitely be back in 2018 and we are beginning to post any information on confirmed activities below.
After the awesome success of the recent Petersfield Spring Festival, the Petersfield Summer Festival will be back again in full force this year with hopefully a repeat of the sun filled Bank Holiday weekend last year. The sun was out, the cars were out, the Empire was out and the smiles were out with young and old enjoying themselves with everything on offer and this year will be no different.
Hometown Festivals will be celebrating another Great British summer this August Bank Holiday weekend and we hope you are able to join us for a while to enjoy it in Petersfield Town centre.
For the eighth successful year the free-to-enter Petersfield Summer Festival will take place on the busy streets and market square in the centre of Petersfield. It will feature three days of top quality live music with the festival starting on the Saturday evening at 7pm followed by two full days of fantastic varied market stall trading featuring some of the best food and products available from the local area as well as awesome family entertainment and activities.
Over the course of the weekend, we will have the return of a whole host of classic cars on display during Sunday as the Petersfield Post & Herald Summer Motor Show return to delight the Petersfield crowds.
On the Bank Holiday Monday, the Solent Renegades (http://www.solent-renegades.co.uk) will join us again to show off their awesome vehicles and every time we have them along their numbers grow and the variety of cars they bring along continues to amaze people.
The Force Festival will return this year to transform Petersfield into a Star Wars haven and we look at having even more characters attending than the 25 we had last year! The 501st Legion will come to town in full Star Wars costumes for you to see and interact with as well as the opportunity to have your photograph taken for a small donation to Round Table Children’s Wish charity. A nationwide charity dedicated to granting ‘handcrafted’ wishes to children with a range of life threatening illnesses. www.rtcw.org.
With your generosity from giving donations when having your photograph taken over the last 2 years of The Force Festival, we have helped raise over £1300 for the charity.
Petersfield Summer Festival Music
The musical line up is beginning to look very awesome!
We will be making musical announcements over the coming weeks on this site once all of the acts demands have been met. The demands have been exhausting this year but we are slowly making it happen. The unicorns to ride backstage have been ordered, the sharing bags full of only red and white M&M’s, the bottles of Coke Zero with sugar cubes in, the list goes on..
Saturday Night Headliner – H!TS
HITS are a fresh five piece that play the biggest 90′s throwbacks to current chart hits.
Unique live arrangements and a dynamic line up will give your night the party it deserves and will have everyone on their feet from start to finish.
Entertaining the crowds with their funk-orientated take on artistes such as Amy Winehouse, Basement Jaxx, Bruno Mars, Calvin Harris, Craig David, Dizzee Rascal, Dua Lipa… and that’s just the A-D section of their repertoire!
Sunday Early Evening - Legends!
After a rousing set at the Petersfield Spring Festival earlier in the year, we couldn’t go without asking ‘LEGENDS’, the ultimate boy band tribute show, to return to the stage again for us this Summer.
Take another trip through your all-time favourite boy band smash hits.
With their high energy show full of smooth harmonies, dance moves & special effects, ‘LEGENDS’ will take you to Pop Heaven.
Sunday Night Headliner - Alive
It looks like they have seen something far more interesting than the photographer and yet Alive are widely regarded as one of the best modern covers bands performing in the UK. Their live show will get our festival crowd jumping and give us a night of incredible live music to remember! Don’t believe us? Check out their lengthy testimonials from their happy clients!
Monday Evening Headliner - The Frank and Dean show
Yes, everyone missed them last year and so we had to get them back to entertain our socks off again!
Let the crooning begin and what an awesome way to end the Festival this summer.
Join Frank (Tom Wood) and Dean (Aaron Brett) as they rekindle the magic of the Frank and Dean show live!
Inspired by the classic moments brought to you by Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin, this is an hour of song and laughs you won’t forget!
With every event we put on, we continually try and improve and grow and so if you have any ideas of anything you would like to see included. Please let us know.
Thank you to our awesome sponsors of last years event, we really do appreciate all of your support in helping us put on our events. Please remember to buy local and support these businesses.
