There will be plenty of drinks and live music with a festival coming to Broom later this month.

The second Broomstock festival comes to The Cock in the High Street in the village from Saturday July 25 to Sunday July 26.

There will be two days of live music, food, real ales and ciders served.

On Saturday, there will be a series of musicians performing a mixture of covers and their own original music. They include Tom Hingley, Millers Daughter, Alex Bay, Honest John, Inlak’esh, The Sons and Rhys Kirkman.

On Sunday, the pub will be hosting the first ever Americana and country music in partnership with Southern Crossroads Music. The event aims to bring a taste of Nashville to Broom.

Among the musicians performing on the festival’s second day Don Gallardo, Luke Tuscherer, Tom Walker and Lauren Davenport. Further acts are also expected to be confirmed before the start of the festival

Entertainment runs from moon to 11pm and from noon to 8pm.

Entrance to the event is £5 for both days. Wristbands to gain access to the festival can now be bought in person from the pub.

A donation from each entry fee is being made to St. Johns Hospice at Moggerhanger - part of the Sue Ryder Charity.

The festival organisers are also working, like last year with the Alzheimers Society to raise funds to fight against dementia.
