Break chosen as Reepham Festival charity partner

25 Apr 2024

We’re thrilled to announce that the organisers of Reepham Music Festival have chosen Break as their primary charity partner for the 2024 Festival. The new partnership means that one of the main stages at the Festival will be named The Break Stage and that we will receive a donation from the festival’s charity fund after the event.

Reepham Festival is a Community Interest Company (CIC) with community and charitable objectives. The team running the festival are all volunteers with professional backgrounds. Surplus profits from the festival are donated to local charities. In addition, a number of charities are invited to fundraise during the event. Organisers ensure that vendors on the festival field are from the local area and this year this will include our CoffeeBreak van.

The festival is a wonderful family event and aligns with Break’s ethos as a charity supporting young people in and leaving care; being a family to support them when they need it, for as long as they need it. We look forward to working with the Festival team and making this an event to remember.

Reepham Festival Director, Tom Crisp said “We’re thrilled to have formed this partnership with one of Norfolk’s foremost charities. Break’s work with young people is hugely important and we are proud to name our main stage The Break Stage”.

The 2024 Festival – known as RFestival 24 – will take place on 10 and 11 August in the small market town of Reepham, just north of Norwich. On Saturday 10 August festival fans can enjoy over nine hours of live music in Rookery Meadow, which is just a few yards from Reepham’s historic Market
Place. There will be two professional stages at opposite ends of the meadow, providing back-to-back music throughout the afternoon and evening: as soon as one band finishes, another starts…

Headlining the Saturday this year are The Hoosiers who shot to fame in 2007 when their first album, The Trick to Life, topped the UK charts. They will be joined by an eclectic mix of bands featuring music of all genres. The line-up includes festival favourites Tragedy from the United States – a glam rock “heavy metal tribute to the BeeGees and beyond” that has to be seen to be believed, as well as bands from closer to home.

On Sunday 11 August, there will be another five hours of live music in Reepham Market Place at the Kings Arms public house.

Tickets for RFestival 24 cost £40 per adult (with U16s tickets just £1) can be purchased from their website at www.reephamfestival.co.uk.
