Nibley Festival is a non-profiting making event, run by volunteers. Our mission is to not only put on a fantastic, unforgettable event, but also to raise money for local causes that need support.
This year £32,108 has been contributed to good causes, by their participation at the festival or through a grant application - bringing the total raised since the festival began in 2007 to £397,090!
We also choose one main charity partner each year, and for 2023 we were delighted to support the James Hopkins Trust:

"The James Hopkins Trust provides care for babies and children up to the age of 5 who have a life limiting or life threatening condition while supporting their families. We currently support over 100 children in Gloucestershire.

Since 1989 James Hopkins Trust has helped well over 600 children and their families in every corner of Gloucestershire, our free nursing respite can be night or day in the family home or at our purpose built multi-sensory respite centre and gardens called Kites Corner.

We are here to create very special, lasting memories at Kites Corner, which is filled with love and laughter."
