Bradfest is an annual open air live music event which takes place in the grounds of Woodlands Park, Otterbourne near Winchester.
On the 14th June 2000, Bradley was tragically killed in a road accident near his home in Hampshire, just four days after his 9th birthday. Bradley’s Foundation was formed by Tina and Gary Dine with some close friends to commemorate Bradley’s 21st birthday on the 10th June 2012. This year the one-day festival raised £12,000 for cancer charities which included the Teenage Cancer Trust appeal.
BBC DJ Nelson topped a bill on Saturday 05 September 2015, which also included Southampton songstress Charley Macaulay, pop singer Danielle May and indie rockers The Novatones, fresh from local Hampshire sets at Common People and Blissfields this summer.
Geest Line have proudly sponsored this charity since it’s birth and has provided limitless time and effort to help support the cause. MD Peter Dixon says: “Geest Line have been delighted to support Bradley’s Foundation for the last three years and to see the success in raising funds in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust. It is always a challenge keeping large amounts of food and refreshments cool at such events and our 40 Foot Refrigerator (in the form of a Geest Line Reefer Container) performed the task admirably!”
We are delighted to see the success of Bradfest and look forward to future events.
