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.

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
