The Sunset Festival is Hunstanton District and Round Table’s first ever music festival, to be held on the same weekend as the British Kite Surfing Championships in front of Hunstanton’s Sailing Club. The initial idea to host a festival was to create a summer event for the local community to enjoy, whilst raising money for good, local causes and charities in the process. Whilst all the money raised from our big events goes to individuals or charities that need our help, we are hoping this particular event will enable us to support a local, young lad living with cerebral palsy to purchase a much needed, specialised trike. The last 6 months have involved the lads from Hunstanton Round Table (best known for other large events such as the Clifftop Bonfire, Christmas Day Swim and Round Britain themed car rally challenge) coming together for regular meetings to organise the event which has effectively, enabled us to host 3 days of music from live bands and DJ’s on the sea front, in conjunction with Hunstanton Sailing Club. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all the local businesses that have come together to sponsor this event – without these donations and their support, we would not be able to host such events.
The Sunset festival will start on Friday 21st July at 7:00pm til 12:00 midnight with DJ Mark Purdy and the band Vex. Saturday 22nd July will start at 12:00 noon til 12:00 midnight with DJ’s NU Movement, bands Goz Unplugged and the Edge. Last but not least, Sunday 23rd July will start at 12:00noon til 9:00pm with DJ’s Rob Mach Ibiza/club Sax, NU Movement and band Rebelation.
There will be a variety of food kiosks in addition to the 3 bars which will a have beers, cider, ales, cocktails, pimm’s, prosecco and wine on offer.
So, finally please do come along and support this event. Whether you’re here for the kite surfing, the music or the drink, our aim is to create an experience that you and your friends/family will want to be a part of every year, knowing that you too, have played your part in making somebody’s life better.
Have fun and make THE SUNSET FESTIVAL 2017 a memory that lasts a lifetime!
