Live music and charity gig Jubilee Rock makes a return to Saffron Walden

PUBLISHED: 12:33 04 August 2011

HOLD on to your hats, a charity gig will be returning to Saffron Walden for a second time next month.

Following on from the great success of the first ever Jubilee Rock back in May, which raised £700 for local cancer charities, The Castle Rock Organising Committee is delighted to announce Jubilee Rocks Again! will be taking place on Saturday September 10.

The event, from 1-7pm, 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 spokesman said: “We really want to ride the fundraising wave of our first event, 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 May audience to come back for more, and a whole new audience to catch the Jubilee Rock bug.”

As if this isn’t enough, the Castle Rock committee has more up its musical sleeve, in the form of an absolute first for Saffron Walden: watch this space for more details of the magnificent Led Zeppelin tribute band Whole Lotta Led, who will be playing in the town hall on November 4.
