The free all-day music festival in honour of Rob 'Bean' Crook, now in its fifth year, will take place on Saturday 12th July 2014 @ Roundwood Farm, Rawmarsh, Rotherham.
We are a group of musicians, lovingly running festivals and concerts in memory of our good friend who sadly passed away in 2010 at the age of 23.
We pride ourselves on giving people quality free live music along with making money for local charity Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice. We have already raised over £13,000 for Bluebell from all our hard work at Bean Fest 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013, and this year were back, bigger, better and louder than ever!
This year we have a new venue - Roundwood Farm, Rawmarsh, Rotherham! We'll have 2 large weather-friendly marquee stages, bars, street stalls, food, official merchandise and the usual amenities for a great day.
We will open from 11.30am, with bands playing from midday until 11pm. Band times will be available 48 hours prior to the event.
The event will take CASH and BEER VOUCHERS on the day, fast track lanes will be for voucher holders only.
Please do not bring your own food or drink to the event. This way we can keep the festival FREE ENTRANCE! With pints at £3 each or 4 for £10, top quality food at reasonable prices and any other refreshments you may require, we have everything you'll need! (Any alcohol confiscated will be sold for charity at the end of the event)
The event will be heavily sign posted from Rosehill Park, Rawmarsh and Kilnhurst bridge, Kilnhurst. So if you're unsure where we are, we have you covered.
Unfortunately there is NO PARKING on site unless permitted. We have a PARK & RIDE facility at The Queens Hotel, this is a great opportunity to pick up some beer vouchers early, allowing you to jump the queues!!
For bus routes, the 109 from Rotherham town centre or the 108 inbound to Rotherham will take you past the site, Coronation Rd will be where you get off.
We've had some great times over the past few years, here are a couple of photos courtesy of Ian Thompson at 3SIXTY5 Photography capturing the magic:
