Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS - By Jo-Anne Rowney jo-anne.rowney@trin­i­tymir­ror.com

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.
