A perfectly petite festival with just a few hundred tickets available, that fills the Punchbowl Farm country garden with a cocktail of live music, DJs, performers, workshops and entertainment. With something for all the family, the festival began in a Wiltshire country garden in 2009 to bring together friends, celebrate creativity and raise money for an incredible local charity.
‘A friendly family festival in a beautiful location; lovely laid-back atmosphere, great music, great food, good times!’ Rosie, Wiltshire
‘Something for all the family, and late night owls!’ Francesca, Bristol

Art Installation & Decor Opportunities
Punchbowl Festival has gratefully received some funding to enable creative opportunities; specifically for art installations & decor creations.
We are particularly interested in applications that take into account the festival environment, are generally weatherproof, made of strong durable materials, can be easily stored and could also be used at Wylye Valley Camp, which the festival fundraises for.
Ideally the installation, decor or art piece is large in scale (minimum of 6ft/2mt in height) and fits with the festival's theme.
We’re particularly interested in:
Interactive or sensory pieces
Creative use of light for art that works by night
Use of sustainable resources and affordable
It doesn’t have to be something made especially for Punchbowl, if you’ve got any existing work you think would be a good fit, we would love to hear about it.
If you are interested in applying for art installations or decor grants, please email email@example.com
If you are a musician, interested in coming to play in the Punchbowl garden, we would love to hear from you too!
Please email Maarten on firstname.lastname@example.org
CELEBRATING OVER 50 YEARS
WHY WE PARTY
Since 1970, Wylye Valley Disabled Children’s Charity has been financing holidays for physically disabled children between the ages of 11 and 16. Every summer, up to 20 children along with a dedicated team of volunteer helpers spend a week under canvas. The camp is a completely self-contained community that brings together horses and people to create a unique environment combining learning, therapy and fun - it’s really lots and lots of fun for everyone involved.
But it isn't cheap to put on a week of this kind and inevitably the camp expenditure is a huge amount. Not only do we need to cover food and consumable catering items for 90 mouths 3 times a day but also marquees for the holiday children’s sleeping accommodation, activities, day trips, resources, coach hire and insurance. Phew! Although volunteers contribute greatly towards the cost of their meals to offset the food bill, there is always a great need to raise funds and this is where Punchbowl Farm Festival comes in!
Wylye Valley Disabled Children’s Charity is a charity very close to the hearts of the crew behind Punchbowl Festival, which is why every single penny goes straight into the charity pot. This helps to ensure that we can continue providing such an important and wonderful experience for these inspiring young people.
