Over the festival weekend we have over 60 bands and performers providing 70 hours of live music across 5 stages and entertainment via the 15 sides showcasing Morris and dance. Our 40 volunteers work over 600 hours in the lead up to and during the event, making sure that every one of the 40000 festival-goers has a great time. In total, it costs nearly £70000 to stage the Hop Festival each year. Did you know that if each person attending donated just £1 we'd be well on our way to achieving that?

You can do this securely with PayPal, no account required. Faversham Hop Festival is a not for profit company and all proceeds go towards next year's Hop Festival - every penny counts! Thank you!
