A Brief History Of Trunchonbury Throughout The Years:
- 2017 -

2017 was the 4th time Trunchonbury music festival was hosted here in North Norfolk.
Our first festival was in 2005 occupying one of the gardens in the
village of Trunch and attended by a mere 40 people and their tents.
A few years later, 2009, it was held in a local farmers field close to
Trunch though this time on a larger scale with camping for 800 people and 22 acts over the 3 days. With around 1200 people attending we were delighted to be able to raise £3000 for the Big C cancer charity.
In 2014, and by popular demand, the festival this time was held in a
paddock close to the centre of Trunch. Thankfully one of our local
farmers gave up their land to accommodate a good sized campsite
extending the event and helping make it a truly family festival. Over
the three days our third festival attracted more than 3000 people who enjoyed 52 acts on 7 stages with the village hall hosting the
Trunchonbury playhouse where guests enjoyed a variety of drama events and workshops.
Our third festival was such a great success, and thanks to the huge
effort from all our supporters and sponsors, we were able to raise
£10.000 for the Mundesley Inshore Lifeboat, Trunch Village Society and the Village Hall.
In 2017 we were able to offer so much more - the festival took place at Madra in August, where we were able to offer a larger variety in music, stalls, food, and children's activities then ever before. This event was such a success and all the feedback has been so positive that we have decided to bring Trunchonbury back in 2018, and return to our roots of Trunch.
