A family-friendly festival has been organised in Hertfordshire and there are several East Anglian bands who will be taking to the stage.
The Folkstock Family Fete and Festival will be raising money for Cancer Research UK and Folkstock Arts Foundation. It is taking place at Aldenham Country Park, Elstree, on September 21.
The Foundation is a community interest company staffed by volunteers which was set up in February this year by Helen Folkstock. Its aim is to mentor and market independent acoustic musicians and has respected folk rock fiddler Dave Swarbrick, from Fairport Convention, as its patron.
Ticket prices are £25 for an adult and £6 for a child aged five and over. There are group rates and concessions too.
Bands from this area of the country include Two Coats Colder, The Bounty Hounds, Marina Florance, Flaming June, Johnno Casson, Alex Highton, The Floe, The Willows, Fred’s House and Maisie Mae.
