Latest update from Bloodstock Festival

2022 saw the very tragic loss of Sylvia Lancaster OBE, the pioneering fundraiser & educator who established The Sophie Lancaster Foundation as well as of course being Sophie’s mum and a dear friend of everyone at BLOODSTOCK HQ.

At Sylvia’s funeral earlier this year, she had requested that everyone attending wear something pink, as this was her favourite colour. So in honour of Sylvia, at this year’s festival on the Sunday, we’re mirroring the sentiment and asking BLOODSTOCKers to please wear an item of pink in acknowledgement of her truly phenomenal work, which has been life changing for many in alternative subcultures.

Perhaps you’d like to don a pink shirt or hat, or maybe plump for a full pink outfit! Let’s see a sea of pink for Sylvia on Sunday, and don’t forget to drop by The Sophie Lancaster Foundation stand in the arena and make a donation if you can. 💕

    It was great to see the guys with the Sophie Lancaster stall at the Download festival, Fantastic charity. We don’t have any pink shirts but I’m sure we will find some if we look hard enough.

    She worked tirelessly to make things better for those of us who experience hate crimes for how we look, an inspiration and life dedicated to all of us x

    Just bagged for the Sunday.

    Massive salutes too Sylvia for everything after something so unthinkably tragic. Rest easy.
