Holbefest CIC is a not for profit community interest company (company number 11319821) that organises and runs "Holbefest", a family fun day and music festival, in June of each year. The organisation is volunteer-based and none of the committee members or those involved in the running of the event receives compensation for their time. All proceeds raised by Holbefest are ploughed back into the local community, supporting the local school, clubs and societies. Holbefest is only possible through the generous donation of time, equipment and sponsorship from local business and community members. If you'd like to get involved Holbefest and make a contribution of either time or support please get in touch via our contacts page.
Supporting Holbeton School Association
The past three years have seen HOLBEFEST raise a considerable amount of money for the local village school, Holbeton Primary School. Like many small village schools, it's incredibly important that funds are raised to support the great work of the school team. How the monies are spent has always been left to the discretion of the head teacher and the chair of the School Association. Over the years we have seen money raised through Holbefest used to support the residential experiences for the children (including covering transport costs and supporting families who have more than one child in the class), purchasing outdoor learning resources for use in the outdoor classroom, the acquisition of much needed guided reading materials for Key Stage 1 and Foundation Years and helping the after school club continue to do their great work in providing wrap around care outside of normal school hours.
