“We are so grateful for the support we receive and cannot thank all those involved enough for the effort and time they put into this project.”

The Depravation Festival is a three-day indoor event in the heart of Swindon and hosted in the town’s most iconic music venue Levels and The Rolleston Arms.

The Sophie Lancaster Foundation, set up by mum Sylvia, was established as a lasting legacy and works to promote tolerance and acceptance for others.

Sophie Lancaster was attacked by a gang of five boys in a park in Bacup, Lancashire on 11 August 2007 because of her appearance as part of the goth subculture.

The gang attacked Sophie’s boyfriend first and then turned on her, carrying out a brutal and sustained attack.

Sophie remained in hospital for 13 days, before following medical advice, the family agreed to life support being switched off when she was just 20 years old.
