Gedd-Stock is happening this year, on Sunday 20th July. Last year’s event had to be cancelled due to the untimely death of Harry Kelly of The White Lion.
Rick Loake, organiser of the music festival, comments:
“This year will be the 12th event, which so far, has raised over £28,000 for charity. Only a one-dayer this year, but guaranteed the best music festival and fund-raising event around – as it always is.
The day starts at 12noon and finishes around 9pm. I have seven bands lined up, plus single acts. In the bar there will be an acoustic mic session, hosted by Ollie Woods: there will be children’s entertainment and a bouncy castle, plus food, a Real Ale bar, T-shirts for sale and a variety of stalls.”
Rick continues: “Every year I have organised Gedd-Stock, we have been fortunate with helpers and volunteers coming forward. If you would like to get involved, give me a ring on 07711 910860 or The White Lion on 01536 742226. Every year we have had generous sponsors and donations of raffle prizes. If you or your company would like to contribute, your name will be displayed on the notice boards at the side of the stage.”
Rick is offering space to stall holders and anyone wishing to have a stall should contact the numbers above.
Rick also adds that the bands are providing their services free of charge, as usual, but for a couple of beers and a burger.
The named charities this year are:
The Cransley Hospice, Bowel and Stomach Cancer Research
The St John’s Ambulance Service and The Samuel Lee Charity
Rick would like to thank Pat, Colin and Perks of the White Lion, for their support and looks forward to seeing everyone on the day – and hopes you all have a great day!
