Musical acts from Bedfordshire and neighbouring counties, will perform at a new one-day music festival to help raise money for Sue Ryder - St John’s Hospice.

The event, called Busk ‘till Dusk, will be held within the 18 acres of the hospice grounds at Moggerhanger in Bedfordshire on Saturday, August 8 from 3pm to 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, who are performing at the event, said: “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 day will include a licensed bar, barbecue, other types of food, and many music-related attractions.
