Hayling Summer Festival

Hayling Summer Festival


In a terrific end of term treat on Saturday 20th July from 3pm to late, a Summer Festival for all the community filled with live music, entertainment, food and fun will take place in the grounds of The Hayling College.  

Presented by The Guildhall Trust (the charity behind Portsmouth Guildhall) the family-friendly event will raise funds directly for The Hayling College to support future projects and activities for pupils.

Festival goers will be treated to a full stage line-up including an energetic display by Dynamic Dance and songs from the 50s to the present day with Utopia – Acoustic Vocal Duo, culminating in some of the best of tributes to top acts including Ariana Grande, Little Mix and Madness!

Adding a splash of geek to the occasion will be GoGeek Events with a range of superhero characters and some fantastic prizes and giveaways to be won for those attending in fancy dress/cosplay and entering the fun stage competition.  

Additional entertainment includes tennis and a soccer shoot out with Horizon Health & Fitness Club, the chance to dance your socks off while getting fit with FITnFUNKEY, outdoor games provided by Game Over and the chance to meet your local Hampshire Fire & Rescue Service crew.

And in what could be a fantastic achievement for the island, all pupils, parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and all their friends are urged to gather to attempt to smash the Guinness World Record for the most people simultaneously standing and linking arms!

Bask in the Festival vibes and enjoy the start of the summer holidays with a bar, fantastic food or BYO picnic, glitter face paints, hair braiding and fun for the family whilst raising money for your children.

The festival has kindly been supported by The Langstone Quays Resort, Progression Signage and Coastguard Café.
