St Clare Hospice is proud to have been chosen as the first-ever official charity partner of the Sign of the Times festival. 

The three-day rock and pop extravaganza returns to Church End, near Little Hadham, for the fourth year on July 5th to 7th – and this is the first time that festival organisers have collaborated with a local charity in this way.

With top bands The Waterboys, Travis and Feeder headlining over the three days, this summer’s event is expected to be a sell-out.

Rosie Knowles, St Clare Hospice’s Director of Income Generation, said: “We are honoured to have been selected as the official charity for this summer’s Sign of the Times festival. It is a fantastic music event that grows in popularity every year, bringing together thousands of music fans of all ages for three days of incredible live music, food and fun.

“This exciting collaboration gives us a brilliant opportunity to raise the vital funds needed to help cover the cost of providing our free, specialist care to those who need it. But, just as importantly it allows us to increase awareness of our work and the services St Clare provides – both here at the Hospice and out in our community – to support people who are living with an incurable illness, and their families.

“Over the three-day festival weekend, St Clare staff and volunteers will be on site collecting donations, spreading the word and selling festival clothing and accessories. We are also encouraging festival-goers to check out their nearest St Clare shop or our online eBay store, where they will be able to find a great selection of sustainable, preloved festival wear so they can get themselves kitted out in the run-up to July’s event. We can’t wait to see you there!”

With a host of brilliant bands and legendary artists across the Main Outdoor Stage and Big Top Stage, Sign of the Times is fast becoming one of the festivals of the summer, combining electrifying live music with food, drink, stalls and other attractions offering something for everyone.

Other acts confirmed for this year’s line-up include Kula Shaker, Jake Bugg, The View, Reverend and the Makers, Starsailor, Scouting for Girls, Dodgy and many more.

Sign of the Times marketing manager Debbie Travis-Waller said: “We are delighted that St Clare Hospice is our charity of the year for 2024. The work they do is incredible and we hope to raise awareness across the weekend of the charity. Representatives and volunteers will be on site all weekend, so if you’re coming down to our festival please say hello!”
