The brainchild of Chris Evans, CarFest is an extravaganza of cars, live music, and food taking place across two weekends: CarFest North on 26 - 28 July 2019 and CarFest South on 23 - 25 August.

Teenage Cancer Trust will receive 10% of total funds raised from CarFest 2019, alongside Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust, Rainbow Trust Children's Charity, and Starlight Children's Foundation. Children in Need, CarFest's principal charity partner, will receive 50% of all funds raised. All four charities were selected by Chris Evans and the CarFest team from a shortlist of UK children's charities.

"I can't thank Chris and the team enough for choosing Teenage Cancer Trust as one of the new partners for CarFest 2019!" said Roger. "This is a huge opportunity for the charity, which relies entirely on voluntary donations."

Without teenagers having a passion for music, there would be no Rock n Roll; being able to give back to this age group is very important to me. CarFest has achieved great things over the years in support of Children in Need - we're delighted to be given this chance and are really proud to be part of it.

Tickets for this incredible weekend of family-friendly fun are now on sale - get yours from the CarFest website!
