What is Bangers & Mash-Up?

Bangers & Mash-Up is a small festival with a massive heart, we are bringing art and entertainment to Redruth for everyone to enjoy, with low ticket prices, quality food and entertainment at a price we can all afford.

Our crew are experienced festival crew, from Glastonbury and Boomtown to Shambala and Port Eliot, we are all too well aware that ticket price and the costs once you are there are high and often put festivals out of the reach of ordinary people.

We are going to provide a festival where everything is fair, quality food, quality entertainment and fantastic free workshops that are fun and fulfilling not just space fillers. People will be able to immerse themselves in art and entertainment to sing, dance. learn and love art. We want to introduce Fairism to festivals.

We want everyone to have a great time and enjoy themselves and not worry about overspending.

This is a festival for one and all!
