The Wyldes

Location:Near Bude, Cornwall

An events company organising music festivals, private functions and other events near Bude is using a six-figure CIOSOF loan to invest in infrastructure and grow its team.

The Wyldes hosts a number of music concerts at its farm-based site with its main event, the Leopallooza Festival, having grown substantially year on year with attendance and revenues doubling in the last five years. The event now attracts a line-up of top-quality music and comedy artists.

The Wyldes co-founder, Sam Dunnett, said: “Over the last decade, Leopallooza has grown from a small event for our friends and family into one of the most successful festivals in the region.

“Obtaining finance for growth is crucial for us to succeed and achieve our goals, but it is not easy in this unique industry.

“We are thrilled to have secured this CIOSIF loan, which enables us to improve the site, invest in new equipment and increase and upskill our team.”
