OUR STORY

A festival with a difference - inspired by one created for all...

 

JOIN US – GREAT TIMES, GREAT PEOPLE, GREAT CAUSE!

 

What can we do? After losing Alice in an accident at the end of 2014 there really was nothing. But somehow from nothing came the spark of an idea. A small gathering in a beautiful pub garden - a flatbed truck, friends, family, music, food and a generous sprinkling of glitter. People came together for Alice and raised £3500 to support the organisations so close to her heart. That was good, so they did it again – but this time with the offer of beautiful farm land to call home the whole event grew. So many people joined together to celebrate all things Alice, to raise money and awareness and to spread a little of Alice’s eternally shining light. Together we raised over £7500. Beautiful Alice Festival is now in it’s 5th year – the petals unfurling as time passes and we reach for the sun. 

 

 

The Beautiful Alice team have been as busy as bees throughout the past year, not only with planning this beautiful day, but also with campaigning to raise the standards of volunteer projects abroad and with pushing for beach safety information to be introduced as mandatory through education and tourist information. Until then, please educate yourselves about the dangers of rip currents – at this time of year especially, it will save lives.

By taking part we are changing lives, we see it happening all around us. Not only through the interactions we have every day, but also by raising vital funds to support amazing charities and the incredible work that they dedicate themselves to. We are making a real difference, as Alice did. This is her legacy.

 

Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain…

 

Let’s Dance, for Alice.

 

With Love Always.

THE STORY SO FAR....

 

The tragedy was reported in the national press at the time of the accident (December 4th 2014). A lot has been happening since then. 

 

Beautiful Alice Summer of Love Party 2019 - All know the way, but few actually walk it.

 

Tragically, at the end of 2014, Beautiful Alice (19) - and her wonderful friend Summer (21) – were cruelly taken from us in a terrible accident that could, and should, have been prevented. They were coming home in just 4 days, having spent the previous 10 weeks volunteering - through the government backed International Citizen Service - in an impoverished township in South Africa. 

The Beautiful Alice Team are fighting to prevent such tragedies from happening again and are now working closely with the UK government's Department for International Development (through Voluntary Service Overseas and ICS), and with international experts, to improve safety standards for young volunteers abroad and to increase worldwide awareness of rip currents. Their loss is unbearable but they are trying to find the courage to keep going. One of the ways they are doing this is by raising money to support some of the projects that Alice felt so passionately about in her short - but wonderful - life.

 

Alice worked on several projects supporting local, impoverished communities in both South Africa and Cambodia. She was a fierce campaigner for human and animal rights and fought injustice where ever she found it. Alice loved music, dancing and sunshine. She described her favourite festival – The Secret Garden Party – as ‘a little piece of heaven on earth’. 


This is the festival to honour Alice and all that she stood for. Following the huge success of the event over the past 4 years, we are proud to be gathering again at Beautiful Alice Summer of Love Party 2019 – on August 17th in St Albans, Herts, UK.

Come and join us there to celebrate Alice’s colourful life in a way that would make Alice proud!

 

All profits go to support charities that Alice believed in, both in the UK and abroad – including the organisation in Cambodia, The Future of Khmer Children, who the team are actively working with and have already been able to provide funding for a whole new classroom, essential repairs and maintenance to existing buildings, supplies at the school and a clean water well for local villagers. A second village school opened last year ensuring that 150 more children have access to vital English education every day.

 

Everyone on site will be supporting the chosen charities – by donating their time, talent, expertise, energy and love. Beautiful Alice Summer of Love Party is an amazing day and  is the foundation we build for the years ahead.

 

There are two ways of spreading light: To be the candle or the mirror that reflects it…

 

Thank you so much for helping us to continue to keep Alice’s light shining brightly in any way you can.

 

Please get in touch if you would like any further information.

 
Love Always.
