Just 12 months after its launch, the Waldstock Charity Music Festival is returning to the Fighting Cocks pub in Wendens Ambo and over 25 bands have already been booked to take part.

There will be limited one-day tickets available on the door, priced at - �5 for Friday, �8 for Saturday, and �5 Sunday, 12s and under go free.
