About Us

From humble beginnings some seven years ago, Animal Aid Festival now stands is in its fifth year, and has grown to become a vibrant, music and fun filled event dedicated entirely to raising funds for animal rescue centres and animal related causes.

Originally the brainchild of Roxie Belle from Essex band Graphite Blonde, the Animal Aid team organising team now includes volunteers young and old from all walks of life, all passionate about the well-being of our animals and all dedicated to making the festival a continuing success.

Animal Aid is run totally on a voluntary basis – all the organisers, staff and participants work for free, the bands appear for free, and everything from the printing to the PA is donated by sponsors – even this website is provided at no charge. In this way the absolute maximum of monies raised goes directly to where it is needed – to the centre housing animals in critical situations.
