Impact Festival is a fun, fabulous remix of performance art and ethical living, with awesome live acts, ethical stalls, interactive workshops, and guest speakers.
Essentially, it’s a bountiful bonanza of arts and ethics to celebrate our beautiful planet earth!
In order to fit everything in, we’ve had to separate it into two different days…
Performance & Social Night - Friday 16th August
Jolene Dover, our feisty drag queen, will be hosting an incredible lineup of performances.
Watch some jaw-dropping breakdance tricks, transport yourself to Rio's vibrant carnival with our fiery samba dancers and live drums, get your groove on with our funky hip hop dancers, and admire our stunningly mesmerizing aerialists!
The acts have performed alongside shows and individuals such as Got To Dance, Ellie Goulding, Strictly Come Dancing, Channel 4, James Corden, Madonna, Jamie Oliver, Peter Andre, Paul O’ Grady, Jimmy Page (Led Zeppelin), International Hip Hop Championships Las Vegas, Franz Ferdinand, Major Lazer, The Olivier Awards and many, many more...
Our ethical fair will play host to a variety of lovely products and companies keen to help out on your everyday ethical living journey.
We'll also have some tasty vegan food stalls and a bar of course!
If all this wasn't enough, stick around after the shows to have a good old Friday night boogie with our sensational DJ.
