Burghfield Santas

We are a group of local residents that create fun events for the residents of Burghfield and the surrounding area to raise money for local charities.

It all started with Santa Cruise 15 years ago when a group of mates went out for a few drinks after making and wrapping many presents. We wore our red suits and raised a little money for the Thames Valley Air Ambulance .

We did this again and again many times and somewhere along the way we realised that charity fund raising is not just for Christmas but Easter too. The Bunny Hop was born, closely followed by Burghfest which satisfied our need for good music, good company & good local beer.

The next challenge was to return racing to the historical home of the Auclum Hill Climb, so in 2017 we launched the annual Box Kart Bash.

In 2018,  we opened The Bulging Sack, our very own Pop Up Pub and in 2019 we acquired a mobile bar, The Wandering Sack, so now we can Pop Up anywhere!

Last year, we raised a truly astonishing £41,000 for a range of great local causes including, of course, the amazing Thames Valley Air Ambulance.

Owing to the Coronavirus our major events have been canceled this year but we did openThe Socially Distanced Bulging Sack  on Friday and Saturday evenings in the summer

Thanks for all your support.
