Olliefest was first held in 2015 in response to the tragic loss of a member of Ross Rugby Club, Ollie Floyd. He was just 20-years-old when he died in March 2015, and was a popular member of the local Rugby Club. Ollie was a fun-loving, cheeky young lad who had a real zest for life! Unsure of how to bring the community together, friends and relatives put together a free community event featuring live music including several well-known headline acts, along with a friendly rugby match at Ollie’s favourite place – the Ross Rugby Club!
The first event was a spur of the moment response to put something together, to acknowledge the grief of losing such a well-loved friend but to also lift the community’s spirits and celebrate Ollie’s life.
The event has grown massively over the last 6 years and now offers a wide variety of musical entertainment as well as a funfair, inflatables and plenty of places to eat and drink.
