MU­SIC fes­ti­val pro­vided a packed line-up of lo­cal mu­si­cians and tele­vi­sion celebri­ties this year, rais­ing £3,671 so far for char­ity.

TV pre­sen­ter Gabby Lo­gan and hus­band Kenny, who live in Penn, opened KnotFest on Fri­day, at The Red Lion, in Penn Road, Knotty Green, where the three-day fes­ti­val was based.

The event raises funds for Thames Val­ley Ad­ven­ture Play­ground, for chil­dren with spe­cial needs, as well as other char­i­ties in and around Bea­cons­field.

The three-day fes­ti­val is in its third year and fea­tured more than 20 lo­cal groups and singers.

As well as the mu­sic, there was also a bar­be­cue and face paint­ing.

The Round Ta­ble pro­vided the mar­quee, while prizes for the tombola and raf­fle were do­nated by lo­cal busi­nesses, in­clud­ing All­sorts and Shoe-be-do.

Red Lion land­lady Tina Massie said: “What a mag­nif­i­cent week­end – I am still on a high!

“I’d like to say a big thank you from the bot­tom of my heart to ev­ery­one who came along to Knotfest, es­pe­cially Gabby Lo­gan, who was so lovely, and all the groups and singers that gave their time.

“I am one of the luck­i­est peo­ple in the world to have so many peo­ple who give me so much support.”
