The primary vehicle by which the Yateley Sports CIC aims to raise money is in the staging of the annual Yateley music festival marketed as the Gig on the Green, Yateley. The first event took place on July 2nd 2011 and has since grown in reputation and success with the 2018 festival attracting crowds of around 8,000 people over the weekend. Taking place on Yateley Green, in the heart of the village, the event attracts families from both local and surrounding communities and features a highly talented lineup of leading tribute bands and local musical talent.

A key element of the success of the day is the involvement of local schools participating in the event. It opens with school choirs and local 6th form students also directly contribute as volunteer ‘Gigmakers’ there to help in pulling the day together.

The 2019 Gig on the Green event will take place on Saturday June 29th and Sunday June 30th at the same venue. It will adopt a similar format to previous years including some exciting new additions. Feedback from previous events continues to be overwhelmingly positive.
