4 - 6 AUGUST
12.00pm - 8.00pm
Now into its 7th year Godalming’s community music, food and arts festival Staycation Live is back and will be held over the weekend of 4th 5th and 6th of August. TST Live who run the festival started it as a charity music event in a Godalming pub 8 years ago, they joined forces with Godalming Town Council the following year to bring their venture under the banner of then Mayor Jane Thomson’s Staycation, a fortnight of activities based in and around Godalming. Staycation Live kicks off this programme of events and is now recognised as one of Surrey’s fastest growing music and arts festivals, with an ethos for showcasing a broad range of music, food and entertainment. It is guaranteed there will be a little bit of something for everyone.
Although a free entry event we ask that you please support the event and our chosen charity by donating on the gate and in any of the collection buckets you will see floating around on site throughout.
This year our chosen charity is Godalming based The Meath who support people living with complex epilepsy, offering a range of accommodation and support services to enable service users to live safely and to work towards gaining more independence in their day to day life.
The festival has brought many great and diverse acts to Godalming with the bandstand as the focal point in the park and this years line-up can be found here. You can expect an eclectic mix of artists and bands ranging from folk to funk and electro swing to rock.
To keep you fuelled throughout the weekend you’ll find some of the best craft ales and cider from local brewers at our well stocked bar curated by Guildford based Little beer Corporation and Godalmings very own Garden Cider company. As always you’ll find mocktails to cocktails at Beetle Juice Cocktails and food from the Milford Meat roaster, Burrito Loco, Ladda Thai and many more.
There’ll be plenty more to keep you entertained with Scott graffiti, chickenbone John cigar box guitars, whittle fun fair, cafe mila yoga workshops, willow twisting, Henna tattoos and much, much more.
Please remember there are great transport links into town with the park only minutes from Godalming train station, so please try to leave your car at home TST.
