All the attractions of a big festival without the crowds or huge price tag. Come along and enjoy the Fun!

Hope is a well established, small, not for profit, non-corporate, Live Music Festival. It attracts highly talented musicians of all ages and musical genres. We provide camping in a beautiful rural location close to Biggin Hill on the Kent/Surrey border. We have 3 Music Stages, as well as the amazing Piano Tent, children’s entertainment and art workshops, camp fires, real toilets and hot showers!

Hard to believe it’s 24 years since we first pitched our tents on a Welsh hillside at “Hope village” to celebrate a wedding. We could never have known then that this annual celebration would still be running, stronger than ever, 24 years on. Since then, we are now at our third, and by far best venue yet, we have been entertained by 1000s of talented performers of all ages and musical genres, and been able to support some amazing charities along the way.
