THE ORGANISERS OF ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST FESTIVAL (aka OUTWEST), have announced that this year’s festival will formally be supporting Storehouse Foodbank.
Inspired by the long-running FoodDrop campaign run by the festival’s Sunday night headliners, Ferocious Dog, Outwest are encouraging everyone attending the festival, taking place 13th – 15th July near Trowbridge in Wiltshire, to bring at least one item of healthy, non-perishable (tinned, dried or longlife, unopened and in-date) food, for donation on arrival at any of the festival entrances to Trowbridge’s Storehouse Foodbank.
Whist all non-perishable items are greatfully received, items that festival-goes are being particularly encouraged to donate include: Tinned meals; Canned fish, meat & vegetables; Jars of sauces, Condiments, and Toiletries (shampoo, shower gel, deodorant, toothpaste).
The Storehouse Foodbank is an independent community project that aims to provide short-term support of food and toiletries to families, couples and individuals in the Trowbridge and surrounding areas. They are a completely non-profit organisation run entirely by volunteers.
Once Upon A Time In The West Festival is a 100% independent, family-friendly Westcountry festival, taking place in deepest Wessex, a few miles from Trowbridge. Featuring three days of live music, a high quality selection of local and international food and beverages (including a showcase by local craftsmen PressHead Cider), and a wealth of other non-musical activities.
Festival organiser ‘Flounder’ Murrary says, “By asking our fabulous festivalgoers to bring even just one item for donation to Storehouse Foodbank, we can make a positive impact on the lives of some of the most vulnerable people within the community that hosts our festival each year.”
Here it is!! In celebration of extending Once Upon a TIme in the West to run a full day on Sunday, we’re going the Full Apple and in association with the local award winning PressHead Cider, present bring you The Cider Sabbath – Full of Western Promise.

As you may well be aware….it’s May!!!!! That leaves us just TWO MONTHS (!!!) until Once Upon a Time in the West Festival 2018. And you also may well be aware that we have MEDIEVAL as our fancy dress theme for 2018 and that we’ve had a few Gargoyles conjured up by the miracle worker that is Perry Harris.
And now we have one more….
Backstory on the latest conception of Gargoyle…
Gargoyles are traditionally used to scare away undesirable things
A certain undesirable is visiting London on the Friday of OUT West.
Word is out Internationally of how incredible Once Upon a Time in The West Festival is (obs!) , and indeed we have people from all over the World come to party with us. Now in anticipation of that certain Undesirable trying to use his vast wealth and influence to blag a couple of guest passes and a campervan ticket, we’ve created this Gargoyle to help ward off any Presidential interests, take-over bids, erection of golf-courses etc etc.
So now’s your chance to name him – we suspect it’s a him anyway, but always up for being convinced otherwise.
All you need to do is to goto the Facebook Page to reply with a name in the comments box below with your suggested name. We will look through all the suggestions, pick the one that makes us laugh the most and the winner gets 5 drinks tokens at the bar for their trouble.
No Facebook Page ? – then feel free to email your suggestions in to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you don’t have your tickets yet..remember only 2 MONTHS to go!!!
It’s here – oh yes.. We’re extending the hours of our late night venue into the daytime for your delectation and consummate pleasure…
Very proud to welcome back as headliners The Showhawk Duo, who currently are embarked on a sell-out tour of national domination.

Then we’re onto local and national Legends and Granddaddies of the Westcountry Party Scene – From Eat Static, Circus Warp, Free Parties to Boomtown and Glastonbury, we welcome along SHane, Dale Martin, Toby Spin, Dapper Dan, Matty , Alex & Tim.
Then there’s the Cabaret with the infamous Universally CHallenged Game-show and get your inner punk thoroughly toned with X-ray Spexercise’s punk aerobics – more nonsense tba!!
