FRANK Water Refill Service

As part of TANKFEST's commitment to eliminating unnecessary single-use plastic on site, we have partnered with UK charity FRANK Water. FRANK will be on site with their Festival Refill Service to serve unlimited refills of filtered, chilled water. 

All you have to do is:
  • Bring your own bottle
  • Visit FRANK's refill stand or find one of the mobile FRANK Tanks to purchase a refill wristband (£3.50 for the weekend or £2.00 per day)
  • Your wristband qualifies you for unlimited refills of filtered, chilled water.
  • If you wish, you can also purchase a FRANK refill bottle for £6.00
100% of profits from FRANK's refill bottles and wristbands fund the charity's life changing work in India and Nepal. The charity works with local NGOs to provide marginalised communities with access to safe, clean drinking water & decent toilets. Since 2005, FRANK Water has reached more than 386,500 people in 440 communities.
