Butterfly Ball at Golden Hill Fort Country Park

May 26 @ 3:00 pm - 10:00 pm

The Butterfly Ball is a live music event taking place on the iconic Golden Hill Fort, just a stone’s throw away from the legendary 1970 Isle of Wight Festival site. It is a charity fundraising event for Gift to Nature.

The Butterfly Ball sets out to celebrate the work we do for wildlife all year round with a joyful event full of colour both visually and musically. Late spring is a special time for our wildlife and it is the perfect time to raise a glass with friends to our natural environment while enjoying some incredible entertainment.

This years headline act is Tensheds, the critically acclaimed, classically trained rock pianist.
A ’Very rare talent’ according to living legend Rick Wakeman, Tensheds has enjoyed repeated sell-out shows on the Isle of Wight over the last 7 years winning audiences at the Isle of Wight Festival & Ventnor Fringe with audacious showmanship and Rachmaninoff piano skills that deftly deliver a brand of both gritty & soulful rock, incorporating elements of his classical background. The result is a genre-popping style that he refers to as “21st Century Blues”. Comparisons with everyone from Tom Waits & the Waterboys’ Mike Scott abound with the boogie style of Jerry Lee Lewis surfacing as the shows escalate. Get Ready to Rock described a performance as ‘Nick Cave meeting Lady Gaga’ while Net Rhythms experienced ‘James Blunt – remodelled by God.’
with Support coming from The Moonshiners, Company B, Second Time Around and Between the Boots and Me, this is set to be a fantastic event for music lovers everywhere and a fabulous way of supporting the work Gift to Nature do every day keeping our wonderful island sites beautiful and open for all to enjoy. Licensed Bar and Food on site. Tickets just £12
