The Butterfly Ball

REF NR: 6950

Gift to Nature Gala Event –
The Butterfly Ball

The Butterfly Ball is a live music event taking place on the iconic Golden Hill Fort, just a stones 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 visual and musically. Late spring is a special time for our wildlife and it is the prefect 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 everyday keeping our wonderful island sites beautiful and open for all to enjoy.
