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.
We are excited to announce that local opticians Specsavers Bingham will be a headline sponsor of Bingham BFest 2017.
Amit Rana, store director, comments "Despite opening only this year, we have already been overwhelmed by the support and commitment of the Bingham community. It’s hugely important to us that we give back to our local area, something which we hope to do by sponsoring BFest and ensuring that this year’s event goes down a storm. It’s vital that we prove our continued support to both our home and our customers."
The Bingham store opened on Eaton Place in February 2017, and is owned by some familiar faces from nearby Specsavers stores; directors Stephen Rogers, Simon Dunn and Amit Rana.
On the 8th July 2017 Bingham Town Sports Club will be holding “BFest”, the third edition of our 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 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 THE ABBA TRIBUTE SHOW: Starring Waterloo, described as a 5-Star spectacular boasting four of the world’s top ABBA tribute artists, all brought together to create a truly authentic sound. If ABBA was the original “supergroup”, then Waterloo must be the original SuperTroup!
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.
