Welcome to the Loving arms festival
Raising funds for Salisbury Hospice Charity
CANCELLED DUE TO CORONA VIRUS
We held our meeting last night and have taken into account the advice given to us by the hospice and we have decided to cancel this years festival due to the current health crisis.
We are extremely sorry to have to postpone the festival until June 2021 but hope that everyone will come and support us next year.
Loving Arms Festival is music festival returning for its second year in the beautiful area of Milton-on-Stour located on the border of North Dorset and Wiltshire. The festival was created in loving memory of Anne Pester to raise ongoing vital funds for the SALISBURY HOSPICE CHARITY.
We have decided to go BIGGER & BETTER this year! That’s why we are EXCITED to say we are organising a FAMILY FUN DAY as well as the MUSIC FESTIVAL all in one day! The daytime will be filled with lots of family fun, games, stalls and entertainers and we will bring back the HOG ROAST & LIVE MUSIC to party the evening away.
