The At Ease Festival – in aid of the Armed Forces Community

The At Ease Festival – in aid of the Armed Forces Community – Euston Hall Thetford starts Friday 26 August

Sporting Force would like to offer Forces Charities the opportunity to be part of an innovative new Festival happening this August Bank Holiday Weekend.

At Ease is a Music Festival that wants to make a difference. A weekend of music, fun, opportunity and support. Uplifting family activities, sports and games, making a positive difference to mental well-being.

The Veterans Village onsite is for all families, but particularly Veterans, this is a chance for military families to learn more about the support that is available to them, from organisations that care. Physical support, job opportunities and career pathways, as well as networking and social opportunities. We are offering pitches at the Festival for military charities and organisations. A choice of an outdoor pitch or in the marquee. Please follow this link to book your pitch.

A wellbeing Village with holistic activities including treatments such as reiki and meditation areas.

Kaiser Chiefs, Happy Mondays, Jake Bugg and many more top acts.

Speakers including Johnson Beharry, Caroline Paige and Bill Bryson

‍Even After Service Ends, let us help you EASE into a great weekend.

All of the profits from the weekend will go to two incredible charities:

Sporting Force – supports ex Armed and Emergency services personnel, throughout the UK. As well as offering a route into civilian employment within the professional sports industry, they provide education, exercise, and social events to help veterans and their families by relieving mental health and social isolation. Promoting inclusion and togetherness, they adapt all opportunities to the needs of disabled veterans. All staff have lived experience of the Service Community and have the understanding and empathy to support the beneficiaries throughout their recovery journey.

My Black Dog – offers peer to peer support for those struggling with their mental health. All of their volunteers have their own lived experiences of mental health battles and understand what you are going through. For people who are finding it hard to reach out to friends or family for fear of being judged or burdening those around them, talking to someone who is not a professional, but someone who understands, can be incredibly healing. “When you don’t know who to talk to, talk to someone who gets it.“
