A Tradition of Giving Back every year

Since 2000, Grooves on the Green has been a proud supporter of local charities, including a significant partnership with Diverse Abilities, raising around £45,000 in recent years.

This year, we’re excited to announce that all proceeds will go to Epilepsy Action, who will also join us at the festival. A heartfelt thank you to Diverse Abilities, the Army Cadets volunteering again, and everyone involved in making a difference. Interested in volunteering?
