Inspired by our vibrant village community in Stockcross, Stockfest has grown from the numerous successful village events which have taken place over many years.
Stockfest Culture Music and Arts Festival began in 2013 and has become an annual event now in its sixth year. It is a celebration of local talent, arts, music and culture but also brings professional artistes to our tiny village. The use of a variety of venues allows visitors to enjoy a glimpse of life in and around Stockcross.
Each year the festival takes place in August. This year it will run for 8 days between the 12th and 19th and see over 20 events encompassing walks, talks, workshops, rallies, exhibitions and performances – not forgetting the scarecrows.
Stockfest is a not for profit community organization run entirely by volunteers. For the first time Stockfest is supporting a specific charity, Newbury Cancer Care Trust. In previous years we have been funded by Speen Parish Council, Greenham Common Trust, the generosity of our Friends and sponsors and through ticket sales.
