A bit about Cowtonbury.

Who are we… 

Hello! My name is Beth and with a little help (actually a lot of help) from my friends I formed the Cowtonbury Music Festival, little did I know what it would grow into as since 2014 we have raised a staggering £114,561.78, but we aren’t done yet and this year on the 29th August we will be hosting our 8thCharity Event.  

We have always supported local cancer related charities and supported people from diagnosis, treatment and recovery.  

Back in 2019 we pledged that for the next 3 years we would aim to raise much needed funds for the end of life care facilities at Northallerton Friarage hospital, to offer dignity in the final hours for our loved ones but also comfort and a place for families to be together.  


Cowtonbury started back in 2013, my mum was diagnosed with breast cancer and after her care I wanted to give back to the hospital in whatever way I could.  Luckily my mum has been in remission now for nearly 8 years, however unfortunately for our little family cancer wasn’t finished with us and on 23rd December 2017 my father was diagnosed with incurable lung cancer and unfortunately passed away in August 2018 at Northallerton Friarage, highlighting the need for improvement of family facilities.  

What we need… 

Your help! 

Match Funding 

Some businesses, employees can access match funding, we would love if you could consider our event for your match funding and we have a charity number available.  

Make a Donation 

If you would just like to support the work we are doing and make a donation we would be incredibly grateful and what I can promise is that your money isn’t going to pay for someone wage, we will use your money to drive our projects forward and make the much needed differences.  

Host an Event/ Fundraiser For Us 

Well, it’s how Cowtonbury started, a small crazy idea that has since touched and changed lives in our area. How about host a coffee morning, sponsored walk, hold a raffle or even organise a tractor rally?  

If you like to do this we would love to support you, get in touch with what you’d like to do and let’s work together.  

An Auction Prize 

In our Auction Book we raise funds by having various packages to bid on, including Date Nights, Weekend’s Away and Exciting Experiences. We would very much appreciate anything you could donate to our auction book.  

An Advertising Board 

We had over 500 people attend the event last year, everybody that donates are advertised both before and at the event. We have to rely on the generosity of local people &businesses to support our event and hope you can help. 

Thank you in advance
