THE team from GlastonBeoley Music Festival will be packing bags at Morrisons in Redditch to help finance this year’s charity music festival.
The fundraising festival, which has donated thousands of pounds to worthy charities, relies on all the artists and bands performing for free leaving the committee to cover all operating costs so that every single penny of ticket revenue goes to good causes.
This year the festival is supporting Redditch NightStop, Redditch Baby Bank, Redditch Special Olympics and Noah’s Star.
Festival director Debbie Joynes said: “It is with the ongoing backing of organisations such as Morrisons that means we are able to self-fund, allowing more money to go directly to the worthy local causes we seek to support.
“The money we raise pays for things such as staging, toilets, lights, and insurance – and this year we are having two stages as we have the space so we are very grateful we’ve been allowed to do this at Morrisons.”
This year’s GlastonBeoley festival is at Birmingham and Solihull Rugby Club at Portway, and has been extended to a full weekend of music, workshops and family fun on June 6-7 with camping available.
Sponsorship opportunities are also available and Early Bird Tickets are now on sale. Visit GlastonBeoley Music Festival on Facebook or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The bag packing event is on Saturday, May 2.
