Village set to get rockin' as it gets ready for first ever music festival

Correspondent 28th May, 2018

SUMMER vibes will be ringing out across Great Alne next month when the village plays host to its first ever music festival.

Alne Fest is on Saturday, June 23 and will run from 4pm to 9pm at Great Alne Memorial Hall.

The event is a family-friendly fundraiser organised by the Friends of Great Alne School PTA.

There will be live music on specially-built outdoor stages, a barbecue, bar, bouncy castle and a variety of stalls offering plenty of fun and games and festival vibes – from flower garlands to face painting.

Alne Fest is being organised by a small band of PTA volunteers, all hoping to raise as much money as possible to support Great Alne School.

PTA chair Abby Ratcliffe said: “This is a real first for us and big event for the school and village so we’re really hoping the whole community gets behind us to make it a success.

“We have some great bands lined-up – including groups from Alcester Academy – all performing on a stage we’re going to build outdoors just for Alne Fest. We want to create a proper festival vibe; showcasing local talent to support our local school while everybody comes together for a really good time.”

A number of special early bird tickets are on now sale at £6 for adults and £3 for children, with under fives free. Buy online at: www.pta-events.co.uk/greatalne or in person from Classic Clutter, High Street, Alcester.
