What’s on: Saffron Walden set for Jubilee Rocks Again!

16:10 08 May 2012

FOLLOWING on from the great success of the first two Jubilee Rock events in Saffron Walden - which raised hundreds of pounds for charities - The Castle Rock Organising Committee is delighted to announce ‘Jubilee Rocks Again!’

To be held on Saturday May 26, from 2–8pm, the event again features a line-up of top local artists performing on the bandstand in Jubilee Gardens, to raise much-needed funds for Saffron Walden Teenage Cancer Trust and East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice at Milton.

A Castle Rock spokesperson said: “We really want to ride the fund-raising wave of our first two events, at the same time as offering the audience a fantastic, relaxed afternoon and evening seeing some of the best bands the area has to offer, all for free, and with bucket collections for these great causes.

“It’s great to be able to offer music to suit all musical tastes and age-groups right in the centre of the town, and this time around, we are bringing together a fresh, new line-up, in the hope of encouraging our previous audiences to come back for more, and a whole new audience to catch the Jubilee Rock bug!

“This relaxed format allows local music lovers to dip in and out if they wish, and also to catch up with friends in the audience.”

The first two hours will feature acoustic sets from Walden’s Got Talent winner Hollie Haines, Saffron Walden’s favourite busker George Breakfast, and duo Stuttly and Louise. Then Crimsonshadow, The AlicebanD, The Happenin Band and The Strangerhood will inject an electrical pulse into the proceedings.

So many bands responded to Castle Rock’s newspaper request for bands to come forward that several were disappointed to find that the programme had already been filled.

“It is hoped that all of these bands will reapply to perform at our late summer event, and we would encourage them to watch the local press to see when applications open again,” added the spokesman.

“We thank all the acts who have shown an interest; it has been very heartening, and encourages us to believe that this could be our most successful Jubilee Rocks event so far.”

The end of January marks what you might call, a return to normal service, where we all finally give up any ideas about diets or abstinence. And so it is with perfect timing that the Scottish tradition of Burns Night comes around. So here’s my local take on the Scottish Bard’s birthday dinner.
