LOVERS of good music are in for a real treat in 2020 – the fantastic GlastonBeoley Festival is to be held over a whole weekend instead of just one day.
It means two days of festival fun with every penny raised going to help vital local charities.
“It was an easy decision to make,” said festival director Debbie Joynes.
“We are always so fortunate to be inundated with generous artists and bands who would like to play for free for us.
“By running the festival over two days, even more of these talented people will have the opportunity to take part.”
The 2019 event raised a total of £14,000, which was split between four nominated charities.
For 2020, money will be raised to support Noah’s Star, Redditch Night Stop, Redditch Baby Bank and Special Olympics Redditch.
“With such important organisations to support next year, a two-day festival will also give us the chance to raise even more money to support their valuable work,” added Debbie, who herself plays in the band Imaner.
“We are currently busy fundraising to cover everything we need to put a festival on – from stages, to lighting and the PA system – meaning that all ticket sales will go directly to benefit the charities.”
GlastonBeoley 2020 will take place on Saturday and Sunday, June 6 and 7 next year.
Noah’s Star supports families challenged by prematurity and disability, offering training and consultancy, support groups and sibling care.
