Hall & Woodhouse (H&W) is continuing its support for Blandford’s Teddy Rocks Festival in 2023, as headline partner.
For the first time this year, H&W will replicate the warm and welcoming experience of one of its pubs for guests at Teddy Rocks to enjoy. A ‘pub structure’ will be created on-site over the festival weekend, fitted with decorative fireplaces, indoor seating, and décor typically seen in H&W’s pubs. The pub experience will also feature a range of free activities for festival-goers to participate in, including beer and cheese tasting sessions, live music, and pub quizzes.
Additionally, the Dorset brewer will provide the full infrastructure and operation of multiple bars, on behalf of the festival, with all profits going straight to the festival’s children’s cancer charity, Teddy20.
Ben Holden, Regional Manager at Hall & Woodhouse, said: “We have looked forward to Teddy Rocks every year since we began supporting the festival back in 2019, as it encompasses everything at the core of Hall & Woodhouse’s approach to supporting local communities, and giving back to worthy causes. Providing quality, welcoming, and exciting experiences for the whole family is what we strive to deliver when having a presence at local events.
“Over 100 members of Hall & Woodhouse’s team, alongside family and friends, will volunteer their time during the festival weekend, to deliver the quality service that our guests receive at each of our pubs across the south. We’re excited to be back at Teddy Rocks 2023 and raise a glass, or two.”
The three-day music festival is taking place at Charisworth Farm in Blandford from 28 – 30 April, with over 100 acts performing across six stages including Feeder, The Amazons, and Jake Bugg. 100% of profit from the festival goes towards regional children’s charities. Primarily Teddy20, Young lives vs Cancer, Bone Cancer research, and George’s Rockstars.
Tom Newton, Festival Director, said: “The support we receive from the whole of the H&W team is simply phenomenal. To have a World class and award-winning brewery so close to us and one who cares so much about our festival and cause is amazing. They always go above and beyond in everything they do, and we class them as very dear friends. Beyond the incredible financial support and sponsorship, H&W also run our awesome bars and this year are even building a pub at the festival in their classic style. A brilliant family run company who are giving a massive amount back to the community.”
H&W has been an official partner of Teddy Rocks since 2019, raising over £140,000 for Teddy20 during this time. This year, H&W will also introduce a new beer from the Badger Brewery, Outlander, to the line-up for guests to try.
