Some sad news…

So despite optimistically holding off to see how this situation unfolds we have to finally give you the unfortunate news that Staycation Live won’t be going ahead in the park this year. However sad that is we feel it’s clearly the right thing to do. Everyone’s having a tough time doing what we can to minimise the effects of this situation and it would be lovely to be able to come together when it’s all over to celebrate community, and those people in our community that have put themselves on the line to look after the most vulnerable amongst us. That’s unlikely to be in August though, so we won’t be seeing you all in the park like usual.

We’re putting our heads together to work out how we can give you all a Staycation Live like experience from the safety of your homes, and as soon as we’ve got some more news we’ll come back to let you know how that might work. Ideally we’ll bring you music, good times and some lovely local food and drink, delivered/streamed directly to your homes.

In the meantime, stay safe, look after each other and we’ll be in touch soon! ❤️

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.
