Musical acts from across the region will perform at a new one-day music festival to help raise money for Sue Ryder ­St John’s Hospice.

The event will be held within the 18 acres of the hospice grounds at Moggerhanger on Saturday,

August 8, from 3pm until 10pm.

Bands, singers and musicians of every type of music from classical to rock, acoustic - and all in between - will perform in the open air, on various stages set up around the grounds.

Fay Boissieux, event organiser at St John’s Hospice, said: “We are so excited to be holding our first ever musical festival. We have some great bands lined up and the hype around this festival is already growing.

“This is a great way for people of all ages to come along and really enjoy some amazing talent within spectacular views. I encourage you all to come along and help us to dance the night away.”

Alex Small, lead singer of Honest John, said: “We are really excited to be playing at the first ever Busk Till Dusk music festival.

“It’s going to be a great day for all of the bands and I’m sure the competition will help bring out the best in all of us.

“The event will raise lots of money for St John’s and this means a lot for some of our band members who have personal experience of the patient care it offers.”

The event will include a licensed bar, and among food available will be a barbecue, and festival-goers can also enjoy the many music related attractions.
