The Potato Pants Festival will be held on Saturday 26th August 2023 Noon till 9pm, at Cobham Sports & Social Club – Wimborne, BH21 3DA. Adult tickets £11, children go free.
Listen to good music, learn about HSP and your ticket cost helps a great cause.
The Potato Pants Festival was created in 2015 with several objectives in mind. It is both a fundraiser and an awareness raiser for a rare, progressive neurological condition called Hereditary Spastic Paraplegia (HSP). It is hoped that at this year’s event, we can raise sufficient funding to purchase a life changing mobility aid for an individual affected with HSP. Any surplus funds raised will be used for research into the condition.
For the first three years the festival was held in the lovely enclosed environment of High Mead Farm, where the event had developed and grown.
In 2019, mainly for accessibility reasons, Potato Pants Festival moved to Cobham Sports and Social Club. A fair percentage of our audience have disabilities and it’s important that it’s as accessible as possible and that these people are able to enjoy the experience as much as everyone else. Cobham Sports and Social Club also has improved parking facilities.
We have two stages, and as always, Potato Pants racing will take place during the afternoon. This year we have attracted some well-known local headline bands and with the two stages we look forward to being entertained by many local musicians of varying genre’s and levels of experience.
