ValeFest is Europe’s Largest Student-Run Charity Festival! Every year, a group of students come together to put on a day of music, performances and activities for their fellow students, the day after exams end. The site hosts up to 7 stages, from the Dance Tent to Comedy and Performance Stage, there’s something for everyone!
Previous years have seen bands such as the Dub Pistols and The Mouse Outfit headline the Main Stage, and every year it hosts bigger and better acts as it grows. It’s also an opportunity for societies to showcase their talent – from Taekwondo to BattleSoc, there’s no shortage of exciting performances on the day.
But let’s not forget the aim of it all: to raise as much money for charity as possible! In the past ValeFest has raised thousands for causes such as mental health, cancer research and malaria prevention. So come along to ValeFest on the first Saturday of June every year and do your bit for charity whilst seeing some amazing live performances!
