Charity festival returns after raising over �2,000 on debut

ORGANISERS of a charity music festival are aiming to build on a successful first year with a very special line-up involving the areas top acts.

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.

During a whopping three-day weekend of entertainment, starting on Friday July 22 at 6.30pm, expect to see all the favourites from across Uttlesford and beyond.

Already confirmed are: The Pins, Ivan and the Wolves, The Strangerhood, AlicebanD, Zocalo, Guardians of Andromeda, She Makes War, and Fred’s House.

Last year the weekender raised over �2,000 for the injured soldiers fund at Carver Barracks and this year all the money raised will go to MEDICS – a first response emergency service run by volunteers.

A three-day pass for the festival costs just �12 and is available from the Saffron Walden Tourist Information Centre, The Fighting Cocks, or on eBay.

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.
