Mappfest is a non‑religious, non‑political independent music based festival

Music, Sunshine, Bar, Rides and Food what more could you ask for!

Everything is sponsored or donated so every penny raised goes to our nominated Charities

In 2017 we raised £5600 for Acorns Children's Hospice, St. Richards Hospice and Community Action

Here is the article from our good friends at the Malvern Gazette... 'Malvern music festival supports hospices and Community Action'

See you in June!
