Olliefest was first held in 2015 in response to the tragic loss of a member of Ross Rugby Club, Ollie Floyd. He was just 20-years-old when he died in March 2015, and was a popular member of the local Rugby Club. Ollie was a fun-loving, cheeky young lad who had a real zest for life! Unsure of how to bring the community together, friends and relatives put together a free community event featuring live music including several well-known headline acts, along with a friendly rugby match at Ollie’s favourite place – the Ross Rugby Club!
The first event was a spur of the moment response to put something together, to acknowledge the grief of losing such a well-loved friend but to also lift the community’s spirits and celebrate Ollie’s life.
The event has grown massively over the last 6 years and now offers a wide variety of musical entertainment as well as a funfair, inflatables and plenty of places to eat and drink.
OllieFest is a NOT FOR PROFIT EVENT, all money raised is given to the chosen charity. Unfortunately, OllieFest 2019 ran at a cost to the event organisers. We still managed to provide to the chosen charities, but nowhere near the level we would have liked, for what was, the best OllieFest to date in terms of crowd numbers. We wanted to keep OllieFest a FREE festival; however, the donation buckets in 2019 didn’t come anywhere near the total required. So for OllieFest 2021, it will be a chargeable event.
