Fundraising for the Brixham Pirate Festival 2019 is now well underway.

The 2018 fesival was seen as one of the best festivals in the bay.

Brixham had never been so busy, with thousands of people ge, drawing thousands to Brixham.

Putting visitors and locals alike well and truly in the pirate spirit.

To help with fundraising a dedicated Go Fund Me page has been setup.

The 2018 festival nearly didn’t happen

The Brixham Pirate Festival is an annual event that is ran by an army of volunteers.

At the end of December 2017 and in the early stages of 2018 there was a fear that the 2018 Brixham Pirate Festival wouldn’t be going ahead, due to funding constraints.

However, a huge funding campaign via a Go Fund Me page lead to sponsorship and donations from local businesses and people from around the bay and beyond.

The dates for the next Brixham Pirate Festival have been announced as the 4th to 6th May 2019.

What’s more the festival is completely free to attend.

However, a festival, on the scale of the Brixham Pirate Festival costs money.

Some of the items that they have to pay for include:

  • Road Closures
  • Signs
  • Licenses
  • Insurance
  • Security
  • First Aid Teas
  • Safety Fences
  • and more

All of the equipment that you see at the festival costs around £32,000 before the organisers even start on entertainment for the weekend.

Fundraising for Brixham Pirates

A Go Fund Me page has been setup for the Brixham Pirate Festival 2019.

The page is currently asking for £15,000 which will cover the hire of a stage, sound and lighting equipment and technicians for the 3 days of the festival.

Of course no contribution would go without an award.

Two winners will be chosen from the Go Fund Me donors.

One Prize will be for the person making the largest single donation leading up to the 2019 festival.

The other will be a person who’s name is drawn randomly.

Further details on this will be available soon.
