About BunkFest

On the banks of the Thames in South Oxfordshire, Wallingford BunkFest is a free-access community festival providing a unique, family-friendly celebration with something for everyone.

In 2023, BunkFest celebrates its 21st year of life – starting from a small marquee in a pub car park to filling the KineCroft and providing entertainment throughout Wallingford, on the River Thames and on the Bunk Railway line.

There is so much more to the history of BunkFest – find out how it all began, the history behind the name BunkFest and why thousands of people flock to Wallingford for the best free festival.

How can you support?

BunkFest is organised and run purely by volunteers with no funding or help from the local authority.

It is a massive undertaking every year to enable the festival to take place.

In order to keep BunkFest the GREAT FREE festival it has become, we need your kind support. Please dig deep into your pockets, buy our beer, buy our food, donate and most importantly ENJOY YOUR FESTIVAL!
