1.Investing in our infrastructure
We invest in our public buildings, leisure facilities and green spaces for the enjoyment and wellbeing of all. Each year, we set aside significant funds for maintaining Redbrook Playground - one of our most valued village assets.
2.Improving local lives
We support initiatives that help improve local lives – particularly for
the young, elderly, vulnerable and less able.
We foster a strong spirit of community through social activities such
as Shine Bright and Live on the Wye music festival.
Projects that fit with our aims can apply to fall under our charitable banner for the purpose of seeking grants and funding. Through our involvement in Redbrook Together, we help link and rally support for complementary ideas and projects that need wider support.
How can we help you?
If you have an idea or project you’d like to get off the ground, there are a few ways we may be able to help:
- Sharing knowledge and skills
- Finding volunteers
- Arranging use of community facilities and spaces
- Covering public liability insurance
- Connecting you with groups and individuals
- Linking you with Redbrook Together
- Providing a financial contribution*
- Suggesting other sources of funding
*While we’re not a grant-giving organisation, from time to time we have modest funds available to support projects that improve village life. This could include covering the cost of materials, promotion or small items of equipment.
If your project fits with our aims but we’re not able to help financially, we may be able to help you identify other sources of funding.

Live on the Wye
Every Year Redbrook Village trust organise 'Live on the Wye' to raise money for village activities.
‘Live on the Wye’ is a music festival with big ambitions, set against the stunning backdrop of the Wye Valley and bordering the beautiful Forest of Dean. Some artists have told us it’s the prettiest festival they’ve played…and one of the few you can arrive to by canoe!
We pride ourselves on attracting up and coming bands across all music genres from Wales and beyond. Climbing Trees, Sion Russell Jones, The People The Poet and Broken Fires are just a few of the acts that we’ve had the privilege of staging over the past 3 years.
We have also built a deserved reputation for being relaxed and family friendly. As always, you can expect to find an excellent programme of young people’s activities – check back for more information nearer the time. The popular arts and crafts area is also set to return and we are now welcoming stallholder applications.
Live on the Wye is run by the community for the community. All proceeds from the festival go back into supporting village life. So come and be merry, and please invite your friends.
Committed volunteers at Redbrook Village Trust sealed an old car park that was contaminated by ash from a nearby tin works, and installed a new playground. The facility now marks the centre of the community, providing a much-used meeting place for children and parents. The playground also attracts visitors from miles around, helping the village shop to stay open and allowing Redbrook to thrive.
