Guildford’s CYP Haven receive this year’s donation

Guildford’s CYP Haven receive this year’s donation

Staycation Live is pleased to be able to donate £5078.04 to Guildford’s CYP Haven.

The Haven is a safe place for young people to go and talk about their worries and mental health in a confidential, friendly and supportive environment. The service is a drop-in so there is no need to phone first or make an appointment. Any young person aged between 10-18 years can visit so long as they are in need of emotional support or concerned about how they are feeling.

We donate a percentage of our collection every year to a deserving charity, and this year, thanks to all our generous attendees we were able to give our biggest gift yet! The festival wouldn’t happen every year without all your generous donations, but we also wouldn’t be able to help brilliant charities like CYP Haven, Shooting Star Chase, Challengers and many more who over the past 9 years have received over £18,000 from Staycation Live.

Improving sustainability at Staycation live

We’ve been aware for some time at Staycation Live that we need to do whatever we can to improve out sustainability credentials. It’s up to all of us to do what we can to extend the planet’s life, and festivals and events aren’t always the most environmentally friendly.

This year we’re able to announce that we’re another step closer to being a plastic free festival. We’re trying to remove single-use plastic from the event completely, so this year our bar will be using these great looking re-usable cups.

It’s a pretty simple system – When you buy your first pint of delicious beer or cider you pay a £1 deposit on top of the price of your drink. When you want another one, you simply bring back your cup and get a refill. At the end of the day you can bring your cup back and we’ll return your deposit, or you get to keep your Staycation Live cup as a souvenir! Everyone’s a winner, especially the planet!

Surrey Beer Festival at Staycation Live

Surrey Beer Festival at Staycation Live

This year we’ve got something special for all you beer (and cider) fans! We’ll be running our very own beer festival on site with beer and ale from all your favourite Surrey breweries.

We’ll be featuring beers from Langham, Crafty, Tillingbourne, Firebird, Tilford, Frencham, Dorking, Jabru BevCo, and Yellow Sky, with something for everyone from IPA to Mild and Craft Lager to Best Bitter.

We’ll also have our friends from The Star, Godalming down, bringing their Staycation Cider Festival to the park, right next door to the beer festival.

Cheers!
