Candlelighters official charity of 2021

It’s a beautiful day, as we get to reveal that Deer Shed’s support of Candlelighters, a charity giving light and hope to the families of children suffering from cancer, will continue throughout 2021.

Families across the UK are facing unprecedented challenges, but for families affected by childhood cancer, whose lives have already been turned upside down, COVID-19 is making life more difficult than ever. Candlelighters currently face a widening funding gap, at a time where the work they do couldn’t be more important.

You can watch their latest appeal video here, showing the world how they've adapted their services, and why it was so necessary that they did.


This November, we also fancy doing Black Friday a little differently. Let’s give something back instead!

If you buy your tickets to Deer Shed Festival 11 at any time today, tomorrow, or on Sunday, (27th – 29th November 2020), we’ll make a proportional donation to Candlelighters.

Deer Shed will donate £10 for every adult ticket and £5 for every child ticket (2-16yrs) on any order placed within the above dates. You won’t need to do anything after completing your ticket order: we will automatically make the donation on your behalf.

Of course, booking to come to Deer Shed isn’t the only way you can celebrate #GiveBackFriday with us. We’ll be equally chuffed if you do it your own way, like donating directly to Candlelighters or to your local foodbank, if you are in the position to do so.

Much love, Deer Shed team x
