CarFest North - 2018 Target for Children in Need is £3.25m


If, like me, you have noticed lots of individuals and traffic on The Ridge, then say no more — CarFest North is a 'first choice event' for this weekend!

This member of the Webteam spoke to several festival goers who were camping and glamping — they had only praise and admiration for this unique landscape. Many were coming back for a second time, having attended the festival last year!

For our local businesses and services on The Ridge, we wish them luck — I know how much time and energy has been invested in this upcoming weekend with some of our farmers working 18-hour days in preparation for this fantastically worthy cause (I hope you are not too exhausted Suzanne — your reputation at Pitch & Canvas goes before you).

And to Bolesworth, your preparation is (as always) meticulous — temporary travel disruptions/traffic information can be viewed by CLICKING HERE.

Let's not forget, however, that this is all for a terrific cause — BBC Children in Need.

The 2017 financial statement (a combination of both CarFest North and CarFest South) is available to view CLICK HERE.

  • Last year £3,109,894 was contributed to Children in Need from the 2 festivals.
  • The 2018 target from both festivals is £3.25m

Enjoy yourselves everyone, secure in the knowledge that you are also supporting a very worthy cause.
