Star Fest’s £2,000 for good causes

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Weekend Fun -

While the Rolling Stones were head­lin­ing at Glas­ton­bury, an an­nual Bat­tle of the Bands com­pe­ti­tion raised over £2,000 for two good causes.

A line up of 10 mu­si­cal groups wowed the crowds from mid­day to midnight for the ninth an­nual Star Fest, held at The Star pub in Ash­ford. Vis­i­tors dug deep to sup­port the Kent Air Am­bu­lance and IHH UK, the char­ity for id­io­pathic in­tracra­nial hy­per­ten­sion.

Cara Standen, or­gan­iser of Star Fest for the past four years, said: “I’m so happy with how the whole day went.

“Ev­ery­thing ran so smoothly and it was so lovely to see so many peo­ple here en­joy­ing the bands and the fam­ily en­ter­tain­ment in the beau­ti­ful sun­shine.”
