Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION - By Jack Abell jack.abell@trin­i­tymir­

A FULL line up has been an­nounced for a pop­u­lar char­ity rock mu­sic fes­ti­val.

This year’s Knotfest, held at the Red Lion in Knotty Green, will take place on Fri­day, Septem­ber 18, Satur­day, Septem­ber 19 and Sun­day, Septem­ber 20.

Now in its fifth year, the event show­cases some of the best bands and solo artists from in and around Bucks, with pro­ceeds go­ing to the Thames Val­ley Ad­ven­ture Play­ground for chil­dren with spe­cial needs as well as other lo­cal char­i­ties.

Last year, the event was opened by TV pre­sen­ter Gabby Lo­gan and hus­band Kenny, who live in nearby Penn, and or­gan­is­ers have promised a “much loved movie star and TV celebrity” will be on hand to open this year’s event, with an an­nounce­ment as to their iden­tity set to be an­nounced in the com­ing weeks.

Knotfest is or­gan­ised by land­lady of the Red Lion, Tina Massie, and is sup­ported by lo­cal busi­nesses mak­ing do­na­tions to the event to help get it up and run­ning each year.

More than 20 mu­si­cal acts will take to the stage at the three day event, per­form­ing a va­ri­ety of dif­fer­ent types of mu­sic and giv­ing their time for free.

As well as the mu­sic, the event will in­clude a bar­be­cue and face paint­ing. En­try to the event is free, and peo­ple are en­cour­aged to go along and help to raise as much money as pos­si­ble.
