Teddy Rocks Festival 2019 Line-up

here. Find out how you can get involved with Teddy Rocks Festival here. Teddy Rocks Festival started with a small gig in 2011 to raise money for Teddy20, a children’s cancer charity founded by Tom Newton and his family after he lost his 10 year old brother Ted to a very rare bone cancer. The gig was put on by Tom’s friends and family in the restaurant of The Greyhound pub in Blandford and raised £400. This was used to fund the very first Teddy Rocks event at The Corn Exchange in 2012, which raised £2,500. By 2013, Teddy Rocks had grown and needed more space, so they moved back to The Greyhound pub, raising £6,500 and £15,000 in 2014. In 2015, Teddy Rocks almost doubled this, raising an amazing £24,000. In 2016 the festival moved to a new site with a bigger capacity and the total raised was a staggering £42,800! In 2017 the festival moved again to a site large enough to facilitate car parking and camping alongside 4 stages and raised an immense £76,000. The festival has found it’s home at Charisworth Farm in 2018 raised a record £83,000, taking our total since the start to over quarter of a million pounds raised. All proceeds from Teddy Rocks Festival go to Teddy20  ]]>
