Woodburystock 2016 is ready to roll…

What has become an annual festival in support of FORCE Cancer Charity is all set to roll out again this year. The original dates have had to be changed, but the venue remains the same. The new dates are Friday 1st and Saturday 2nd July with ‘The Malthouse’ at ‘The Maltsters Arms’ being the venue.

As has become usual, there will be a session on Friday evening – followed by a Saturday afternoon garden session and a Saturday evening session. While the Saturday afternoon session will again be free of charge (with charity collection), Friday and Saturday evenings will be entry by ticket or pay on the door. Ticket prices are just being finalised, but will continue to represent excellent value.

Once again all the bands, singers and organisers are giving their time and talent free of charge to this worthwhile charity. There will be a good mixture of favourites and newcomers this year with some surprisingly big local names volunteering their services. Friday night’s headline act, new to the festival being the ever popular ‘Shovelhead’ and Saturday’s top of the bill being ‘The Sugar Shakers’ who went down a storm last year. Watch this space for further announcements.

Other local services are coming on board. In particular we would like to thank Arron Highley whose web publishing company are producing this year’s posters. The organisers would like to include a stage for this year – of course budget means it needs to be done cheaply, for free or have someone sponsor a stage. Help would also be appreciated with publicity. If there is anyone who would like to be involved or can help in any way, we would be delighted to hear from you. Please contact: – all offers of help gratefully received.
