We had a great time at
Fri 31 Aug-Sun 2 Sept 2018
We asked the question "What Lifts Your Spirit at BunkFest?"
Each year we host the Creativ-ID tent
(near the food stalls on the Kinecroft)
In 2018 for the first time we invited festival goers to decorate flags and contribute to Wallingford's biggest fridge magnet poem! (In previous years we made lanterns).
The Creativ-ID tent was open for youth activities on the Friday night then for flag crafts throughout the weekend. There were several different types of flags to have a go at whatever your age.
All our activities are free of charge, run by volunteers, and we have a great time meeting new faces from the local community.
On Sunday early evening we had a flag parade through the town with drummers and some really big flags joining in to make a loud and colourful spectacle as the main entertainment drew to a close. We then congregated to hear the amazing BunkFest poem (that had been composed by festival goers on our giant fridge magnet board) performed.
Sunday service @ BunkFest
Church as you may never have experienced it!
On the Sunday morning we hold our BunkFest style open-air Christian worship service. We had over 300 join us for this service in 2017 despite torrential rain and had an even better time this year in the blazing sunshine, so make sure to come along with your deck chairs or picnic blankets next year - and bring your friends!
For 2018 we welcomed back musicians Marc James and his band (who played in 2016) as well as the amazing Dave Fidler and Lily-Jo (who graced the main stage and led our service in 2017) to lead our worship.
A group of local musicians, artists and poets from Ridgeway Community Church and WBC who bring some creative fun to BunkFest each year.
Everything we do at BunkFest is made possible by church members volunteering an hour or two of their time. If you are part of the WBC or RCC church families and would like to find out more about getting involved for 2019, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
