Over £15,000 raised for charity
+ Steventon Junior Cricket Club Sponsorship!
Charity fundraising has always been at the heart of Truck since the first festival back in 1998 and although, for obvious reasons, the 2020 event couldn’t go ahead we wanted to support the vital work Be Free YC, Abingdon DAMASCUS Youth Project and the Steventon Darby and Joan club do in the local community. Through our Truck Festival Celebration back in July, we’re please to announce that although we couldn’t party in real life, the charitable spirit remained and we have raised a staggering £15,000! Absolutely incredible.
The grand total comes from our limited edition T-shirts, designed with our good friends at So Young Magazine, a limited-edition Big Smoke Brew Co. x Truck Pale Ale and our Monster Truckin’ raffle – which included a Truck Ticket FOR LIFE! You can still catch all Truck Celebrations including exclusive virtual performances from Blossoms, Mystery Jets, BETSIE GOLD, a Mr Motivator Workout plus many more here
Over the past seven years, we’ve helped raise over £365,000 for local, national and international charities – and we couldn’t be more grateful!
But that’s not all, we’re also pleased to announce we have sponsored the Steventon Junior Cricket Club! With money providing kit for all the teams (with cricket available for boys and girls from ages 5-15) as well as subsidised shirts – so everyone has the chance be involved.

“We’re grateful to Truck Festival for their generous sponsorship of the junior cricket club,” says coach Joe Bennett.
“It’s not just the financial contribution, although that was instrumental, it’s also brilliant to have that link with our local festival. The relationship between village and festival has always been symbiotic, and it’s great to strengthen that bond further. Plus, the kids walk out on to the pitch feeling 10 feet tall because they have the coolest shirt sponsor!”
Truck Festival returns 23rd – 25th July 2021! Due to 2020 rollovers, 70% of Weekend tickets have already sold, the remaining tickets go on sale Monday 5th October at 6pm.
