Our annual free-to-visit festival, which began in 2014, will be held once again on Sunday 14th August. Taking place in the old part of Mountsorrel it includes a Street Parade, Fun Run, Soap Box racing, village competitions, activities for all ages, themed areas, lots of music – indeed something for all the family.
We don’t currently have any spaces left at REVIVAL but if you would like to be put onto our waiting list, please still fill in our application form. That will also ensure that you are invited again next year when booking opens.
The good news is that a ‘standard’ pitch is still £20. You’ll be able to tell us exactly what you want during the on-line booking process but if you have any pitch/stall related queries you can either raise them as part of your request or click here to email us now.

This is our traditional fete area. About 20 pitches are located on both sides of the old village green. Our plans for this area include traditional attractions such as, fancy dress competition, Morris dancing, musical Interludes and more. The fun-run and parade will terminate here. We are again seeking permission to close the road so there will be no vehicular access to this area during the event. All pitches are on grass.
The fantastic Memorial Centre will hold about 20 internal stalls in the magnificent main auditorium; typically, these will be Art & Crafts, but all are welcome. Upstairs we are hoping to include a model railway and to host our village competitions.
Soar Valley Leisure Centre
The Soar Valley Leisure Centre car park will again host about 6 external pitches. These catch all the passing crowds moving between the Playing Field and the Memorial Centre/the Green. All pitches are on hard standing.
This is our main activity area. We are planning a mix of activities and stalls. We are looking to provide activities such as an assault course, laser quest, dog show, and dog agility all alongside all the old favourites like Have-a-go-Archery, soapbox racing, trampolines, and mini-roundabouts. An advantage of this area is that stallholders will be able to park their vehicles near their pitch. All pitches are on grass.
About a dozen stalls located from the yard at the Temperance Hall to the junction of the Market Place and Sileby Road. We are planning live entertainment in the Butter Market and we are again asking to close Watling Street to traffic to provide a safer environment for visitors to watch, listen and shop. The fun-run and parade will pass through this area. All pitches are on hard standing.
Waterside Inn Area
A small number of stalls will be based in and around the closed Waterside Inn Car Park. We are planning to host the Classic Car show here and Have-a-go-Boats on the River, as well as some musical entertainment. Most pitches are on hard standing. Add a note to your request if you would prefer a grass pitch.
