Feast of music over weekend will help Kelly’s appeal
The weekend features the two-day Dover Music Festival, bringing a feast of live music over two days on Saturday, August 26 and Sunday, August 27.
The indoor festival, held at Cruise Terminal One, Western Docks in Dover, is by free entry with a donation to the Kelly Turner Appeal, which is raising funds for 17-yearold local girl Kelly, who has a rare form of cancer which cannot be treated in this country.
Her family is raising funds for her to travel to America for the treatment, and has raised more than half of the £1 million needed. Confirmed for the Saturday will be Tex Mex band, Los Pacaminos featuring Paul Young, The Mods, Rudy Warman and the Heavy Weather and the New Traders Soul Paul Young (third from left) with Los Pacaminos, and right, Toyah Willcox Band among others, while on the Sunday are performances from the likes of Toyah, Flox, Ben Russell and the Charmers and Salvation Jayne. Both days will feature plenty of food and bars open and there will be a party atmosphere, with a range of stalls and free entertainment. There is limited parking next to the Western Docks and a shuttle bus will run from the Market Square. The event has local sponsors and support from Dover Big Local and the Port of Dover Community Fund. For details go to dovermusicfestival. co.uk
