Carfest revving up for bumper 2017 duo of events!

Getting into gear for a hugely successful 2017 ‘double’ is the Carfest Festival 2017  in the North and the South of the UK, scheduled for this up and coming July and August!


Carfest North is at the beautiful Bolesworth Castle in Cheshire on 28th – 30th July and Carfest South will take place on the wonderful Laverstoke Park Farm in Hampshire on 25th – 27th August.


For those who don’t know, Carfest is a ‘coming together of music, cars and fun’ and all in aid of BBC Children in need. It was apparently the ‘invention’ of the luckless, short stay, ‘Top Gear’ Jeremy Clarkson replacement host ‘ginger’   Chris Evans – a complete car ‘nut’ of course!


CarFest particularly fits with us at QuotroFest, involved as we are with our Comms and Merchandise service in both the Festival Biz and also car dealerships too! One for our diaries for sure…….we are working on a cunning fundraising approach between CarFest and the car dealership network.  Good idea eh? We’ll see if it comes together!


News is that the tickets are going well and that there’s a further Spring ticket release due very soon. Best to do is get in on the Car fest newsletter …go here


Ticket prices are as follows Friday ADULT (17 yrs & older) £67; Friday CHILD (6-16 years) £15; Friday FAMILY (2 adults + 2 children) £136 Saturday or Sunday ADULT (17 yrs & older) £72; Saturday or Sunday CHILD (6-16 years) £15.00.
