The Forever Young Music Festival 2017.  

Last September, we hosted the inaugural Forever Young Music Festival, at our Grimston Court home, in York. The festival was organised to raise money and awareness for two very special charities, Age UK York and St Leonard’s Hospice. And with your help, we’re looking to make this year’s event even bigger and better. So save the date in your diary, and bring along your family and friends and help us make the day a special one.

As well as the main tent, and the food and drink stalls, there'll be plenty of things going on throughout the day. With an ongoing BBQ, cake and craft stalls, dance tent, tombola, treasure hunt and much more more, there's something for everyone of all ages. 

The festival is completely free, but we are charging a flat fee of £5, for an all day parking pass. Money raised from the sale of these tickets will go towards our charity fundraising appeal.

The main purpose of the festival, is to raise as much money for the two amazing charities we're supporting, Age UK York and St Leonard's Hospice. On the day of the festival, there'll be plenty of opportunities to show your support, by making donations. We'll be walking around with donations buckets and other fundraising events throughout the day. A huge big thank you in advance for your help and support.

A selection of pics from The Forever Young Music festival 2016, held at Grimston Court. On the day, the rain came down, but even that couldn’t dampen the spirits. With a huge turnout, the day was a complete success, and we’d just like to thank everyone who made the effort, including special mentions to all the performers, on the day helpers and companies who provided their help and services. Hopefully this year will be even bigger and better, and fingers crossed for the weather to stay dry and sunny.
