Enter the Isle of Wight Festival’s charity ballot

1 min read

After the success of previous years, the Isle of Wight Festival’s local charity initiative returns.

Local charities and good causes on the Island are invited to apply for tickets to use in their fund-raising activities, via the Festival’s ballot system.

There are 20 pairs of tickets available and charities and organisations are able to apply until midnight, April 3, with a brief explanation of what they intend to do with the tickets for the benefit of their charity or good cause.

Festival owner, John Giddings, said: “I’m delighted to announce that the Isle of Wight Festival is bringing back its charity initiative for 2022. We really hope it will give local Island charities a chance to raise much needed funds, particularly after the very tough past year.

“There are so many fantastic charities on the island and I’m looking forward to reading all the applications.”

You can apply for the chance to win a pair of tickets for your charity or organisation online at
