In 2012 a few of the Headley YFC committee sat around at a table having a pint and wondered if we could come up with a fund raising idea that was a little bit out of the box for a youth football club and something that also cemented the family spirit of Headley Youth Football Club and its origins.
HYFEST was born
In 2012 we linked the festival with our two yearly inter club football tournament and had a great all day event supplying the music were Keeley and The Dealers, Leigh Paige, Track of Words, Aimee and The DBeez.
In 2013 we were very lucky to have Through the Wire Headline for us (on a very cold evening) with the very talented Ward Thomas including Dan Gordon who have gone on too much bigger things playing in front of thousands at places like Hyde Park. We also introduced some variety to the afternoon with The Great Alprendo who starred on Britain’s got Talent and is a very funny and talented magician.
In 2014 we decided to finish the main stage at 21:00 and continue the music going in The Bar area on a smaller stage, the fantastic Joe Waller performed for us in here and blew us all away.
