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 2016. 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 the 9th July 2016 Butt Field Sports Club will be holding “BFest”, the second music festival to be held at Butt Field. BFest is being organised by the volunteers of Butt Field Sports 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 Butt Field 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 Ben Michael Jackson, described as breathtaking mesmerising and incredible. A live Michael Jackson concert was an electrifying and memorable event and now the magic is back!

BFest will have two stages one acting as the main stage and the second being held in the Butt Field Sports Club featuring acoustic artists and local up and coming acts. The event will also feature other activities including, children’s funfair rides, food stalls, outside and inside 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.
