KnotFest ties up its first acts
A POPULAR music festival has announced the line-up for its third year of fundraising.
KnotFest will take place from September 12 to 14 at The Red Lion, in Penn Road, Knotty Green, to raise money for Thames Valley Adventure Playground, for children with special needs, as well as other local charities.
Up to 800 people have attended in previous years to see musicians perform.
The event focuses on local talent, including Voice of South Bucks winner Hannah Walters, from Penn, who will perform at 1pm on Sunday.
More than 18 acts will sing, including ‘Cougar’ Bob Newell, Learnerz, Michelle B, Gary Roman and Generations. More acts have yet to be announced.
Round Table has provided the marquee, and prizes for the tombola and raffle have been donated with Allsorts, in Beaconsfield, and Shoebe-do, already providing prizes.
A hog roast and face painting will also be available.
Landlady Tina Massie said: “I am actually speechless at local businesses’ generosity and that of other people.”
Husband Bob Massie said: “As KnotFest has gone so well in the previous two years we thought we’d bring it back. We’ve got another great line-up.”
Last year’s festival raised £2,810.39 for Thames Valley Adventure Playground and local charities.
