Rex Gooding - Headline Sponsor

We are delighted to announce that local estate agents, Rex Gooding, will be this year's headline sponsor of Bingham BFest 2017. Working with a company such as Rex Gooding whose foundations and commitment to the local community goes back decades will ensure we have an event to be proud of.

Daniel Gooding, Residential Partner, comments "Being part of the community is fundamental when you not only earn your living from it but you and your family have lived there for over three generations. It was therefore an easy decision for Rex Gooding Estate Agents to sponsor this year's festival." Daniel adds "It's also a testament to how well organised and the popularity of the event last year, that we're able to add our support and ensure we help sustain its future."

Rex Gooding has two sales offices, one in West Bridgford, the other at 12 Market Place, Bingham. The Bingham team, headed by Daniel and locals, Lucy Furse and Tom Fisher, look forward to another hugely successful BFest.



On Saturday the 14th July 2018 Bingham Town Sports Club will be holding “BFest”, the fourth edition of our family focused music festival to be held at Butt Field. BFest is being organised by the volunteers of Bingham Town Sports Club Committee who are responsible for the upkeep and development of the facilities at Butt Field, Bingham which are used by Bingham Town Youth & Senior Football Clubs and Bingham Town Cricket Club. The funds raised from BFest will go towards the upkeep of the Bingham Town Sports Club and improving the current facilities for the 400+ children and adults who use them. One of the key aims of the club is to provide a 3G pitch in the future and add facilities which will enhance the cricket pitch.

The event itself will be held at Butt Field, Bingham and will feature a mixture of bands from the East Midlands but with an emphasis on local music wherever possible. To give BFest an overwhelming finale the closing headline act will be Take That LIVE! Tribute Band. They have been a recognised as the best Take That Tribute Band by the Agents Association at the National Tribute Awards. They have featured on ITV, BBC3, and a documentary on E4. Gaining rave reviews from members and associates of Take That and even Nigel Martin-Smith himself, the man who created and managed Take That!

BFest will have two stages one acting as the main stage and the second featuring acoustic artists and local up-and-coming acts. The event will also feature other activities including, children’s funfair rides, food stalls and outside bars, face painting, etc.

Entry into BFest will be from 11:45am, with the first bands performing from 1pm and our headline act finishing by 10pm.

There will be no ticket sales on the door - tickets must be purchased in advance.


Acoustic Stage Line Up

Hollie Kendall

I am an acoustic artist who has recently moved to the area. I wrote my first song at the age of 13 and taught myself guitar while studying at University. I play both originals and covers, and I’m part of an electro-beat dance band called H Campus. My influences include: Kate Bush, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Marina and the Diamonds and The Cure.

Elliot (Skel) Sayers

Elliot played at the festival last year doing a range of covers, he usually plays in a rock band but on this occasion will be taking to the stage himself to perform for us all on 14th July.

Tiegan Donovan

I’m a 19 year old singer/songwriter and I have lived in Bingham my whole life. This will be my third year singing and working at Bfest. I will mostly be performing my own original songs this year to help share my music with a wider audience in preparation of my first album. My music is a variation of genres but all my songs have a story, come see what you think.

Dale Thomas

I am a singer who has lived in Bingham my whole life, and enjoyed many seasons playing for Bingham Town Football Club. I play a diverse range of covers from The Beatles to Chase and Status, as well as my own material. I have played gigs all around Nottinghamshire including 'Deerstock' and 'Stathern Festival'.

West O' the Moon

Bingham’s own Richard Hardy is back for a second year at Bfest. This time with new band West O’ the Moon featuring Murray Reilly on lead guitar and Steven Hardy on bass – all fellow Bingham dwellers! We’ll be bringing a set of festival favourites to get the party started on the Acoustic stage!

Nicola Jerem

A local girl from Bingham, I perform well known covers and I am hoping to sing my first written piece at the festival. My speciality is ballads, Disney and Country Music. My current love is "The Greatest showman", I'm sure I’ll be popping one of these songs in on the night so look out for that.

Oakleas Rise

‘Oakleas Rise’ is the collaboration of Northamptonshire based singer/songwriters Lesley Curtis & Stuart McLeod. They write, record and perform their original music – a potent mix of country folk with beautiful melodies and poignant words.

Strange Currencies

Something strange, something eloquent, refreshing, rhythmical and blissful. From their acoustic sets to full on indie rock/funk/blues sounds, Strange Currencies sound like Midlander Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pearl Jam, progressive REM. With an eclectic acoustic foundation, this is rock music for the soul.
