Denny’s Fest is our annual charity event, held here at the shop. In memory of our founder Denny Rowe, the event is co hosted by our friends at 14 Arrows Tattoo Studio, as well as support from other local businesses. Every year we choose a locally based charity, with help from our customers, to raise funds and awareness for.
A special charity price on haircuts and tattoos is available on the day with proceeds going to our selected charity. Down in our secret garden, live music is played from a variety of talented local artists. Our purpose-built bar and BBQ will keep you refreshed throughout the day and also contributes to the charity pot. Denny’s Fest has featured a host of musicians, including The Maverick Turtles, WVM, Ryan Weeks, Stone Tooth, Chloe Marcela, The River Flows, Harry ‘Sinatra’ Hickmott, Riff Raff, Candy Stripe Messiahs and more.
We have so far raised over £14,000 for some very special causes:
The Pickering Cancer Drop-In Centre –
The centre is a self-funding registered charity. It was established by a group of cancer patients, who recognised the need to somewhere to go, to relax and talk with others in a similar situation. They also realised that families, friends and carers needed a place to find information and talk freely, without burdening the patient or each other. https://www.pickeringcancercentre.org.uk/
The Tree of Hope –
Tree of Hope is the crowdfunding charity that helps children and young people with a disability or illness by supporting their families to raise the money they need to pay for specialist care that is not freely available through the UK healthcare system.
Mental Health Resource –
MHR provide safe spaces and person-centred mental health support in our community to help people improve their wellbeing.
Although Denny’s Fest grows more and more every single year, regrettably we have had to cancel Denny Fest 2020 due to COVID-19. However, we will be back with a bang in August 2021 and look forward to seeing you all then.
