A unique charity music festival. All proceeds to St Richard’s Hospice, Worcester
The next event - Winter Woo - 15th December 2023
Woo Fest is an award winning multi-genre family music festival that raises funds for St Richard’s Hospice, Worcester, England. It’s set in a beautiful location near Upton upon Severn and has gone from strength to strength since its launch in 2015 raising over £140K with every single penny from every ticket going to the hospice. We also bring you quality music from lots of amazingly talented musicians performing a mix of genres and originals and covers. This is supported by lots for children to do and incredible food at our Woo Fest Kitchen.
It‘s grown from a small festival of friends and family to the first festival on the calendar for many new friends. We smashed all records in 2023 where we raised over £30K for St Richard's Hospice. Every year we learn a bit more and get a bit better but the heart of Woo Fest stays consistent and that's what makes it so special. Great people coming together to volunteer with their time, skills and equipment to put on memorable weekends.
5th / 6th July 2024
Our 10th Festival (including the 2 virtuals)
Tickets will be on sale soon - expecting another sell out
More information very soon - it’s going to be epic!
Woo Fest 2023 was a massive success - once again a complete sell out. We had 2 stages of outstanding music with camping in glorious surroundings. There was loads for the kids to do, many different genres of music and wrestling even made its Woo Fest Debut! The Woo Fest kitchen went from strength to strength with fine locally sourced cuisine.
We raised a phenomenal £30,544.25 for St Richards Hospice, up 18% from the previous festival and now over £140K raised in total thanks for all the support!

Woo Fest organises fundraising nights throughout the year, always great nights with superb music
Our last event was on 2nd December featuring Andy Bennett (formerly of Ocean Colour Scene), Drifta, The Cuginis, Immy & The Boatman and Nadi Hafren. It was a fantastic night with lots of guest performances and we raised £1,600 for St Richards Hospice . Next event - Winter Woo - 15th Dec 2023
Woo Fest was set up to raise funds for St Richard’s Hospice in Worcester, the inspiration coming from the story of a local man who benefited from their care. Click below to read the story behind Woo Fest and more about St Richard's Hospice.
Woo Fest received recognition at the prestigious UK Festival awards, winning the Best Small Festival at it's 2022 awards ceremony for the second year in a row!
This was an amazing result for Woo Fest , beating off competition from much larger festivals and winning due to our charitable aims, family focus, incredible line up and relaxed atmosphere.
Making Woo Fest a great experience for the whole family is one of our main objectives and part of this is making sure kids have plenty to do.
Entry and camping is free for children and we always have activities that the kids can get involved in (such as forest school and craft sessions). Most of these are also free and we are lucky to be supported by the fabulous Jungle Jiggle
More importantly, Woo Fest is a safe environment for children, so the whole family can relax and enjoy the music.
Our regular Woo Fest kids also want to raise money for St Richard's Hospice so in the past have completed walking challenges and held bake sales - get involved!
