Having things in the diary to look forward to is literally everything right now! Am I right?! Summer is coming and it is looking like a whole lot of fun! Following news of the government’s latest ‘Roadmap to Recovery’, Chris Evans’ today announced that CarFest North is all set not only to return to Bolesworth Estate from 23rd – 25th July, but will now also be releasing more tickets for sale on 1st April. 

Limited tickets were initially released for CarFest North back in November and sold out within hours. The latest ticket release is indicative of the growing confidence amongst the general public and increasing demand from CarFest fans for the festival to return and make more tickets available, as they are now all ready to celebrate in style. Organisers are however still remaining ‘responsible and cautious’; and will release limited tickets in April, ensuring that they are still able to deliver a safe and if necessary, socially distanced environment. 

Chris Evans, who created the festival to raise funds for charity, back in 2012 says: ‘We all need something to look forward to this year. I want to bring as many families together this summer as we can. Let’s make some new memories away from a screen!’ 

Since CarFest was born, its sole purpose has been to raise funds for UK’s Children’s Charities and has successfully raised over £16.5 million for partner charities over the past nine years. The festival will continue to #DoMoreGood to raise funds for UK Charities in 2021, with 20% of the face value of ticket prices and all profits going directly to its charity partners: BBC Children in Need, Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust, Rainbow Trust, Starlight Children’s Foundation and Teenage Cancer Trust. 

Evans continues: “2020 was tough for us, but had an even more devastating impact on charities across the UK. It’s critical that we are able to bring CarFest back this year and raise even more money to help our charities, that have continued with their essential work in supporting the most vulnerable of our communities.” 

Celebrating its 10th birthday this year, CarFest North will be packed to the brim with activities for every member of the family, promising plenty of family fun, with the best music, the fastest and loudest cars, and the brightest stars! 

Across the weekend, the Main Stage will play host to a fabulous line-up of acts joining forces to celebrate CarFest’s 10th birthday, including: All Saints, Basement Jaxx , McFly and Tom Grennan as well as The CarFest Supergoup featuring The Feeling, Roger Daltrey Freya Ridings, and Beverley Knight.

As well as a great music line-up, CarFest also brings together some of the most popular and familiar TV chefs at the Napoleon Kitchen Stage including Melissa Hemsley, Jose Pizarro, Ching-He Huang, and Atul Kochar, leading DJs at the Club CarFest stage and a host of stars chatting intimately on the StarFest stage. 

The festival site is packed with entertainment and activities for the whole family including four daily track shows featuring a breath-taking collection of cars, a host of interactive stands and features, shopping and loads to eat and drink! 

CarFest will be carefully designed to ensure the whole site, including staff and visitors meet with the latest government guidelines around Covid-19. 

The highly sought-after tickets go on sale at 8am on Thursday 1st April 2021, with adult day tickets starting from £74.
