A music festival raising funds for St John’s Hospice at Moggerhanger is being held once again during August.

The Sue Ryder charity is bringing back the ever popular Busk Till Dusk with support from Sandy estate agents Inskip and Davey, who are sponsoring the main stage.

The festival is on Saturday, August 13, from 3pm until 10pm in the hospice grounds.

St John’s have added a carnival twist to the festival including wheel, fire and glow and much more. The organisers are encouraging people to have their faces painted and get into the festival spirit.

Tony Darnell, PR, communications and marketing officer for the event, said: “We’re really excited that Inskip and Davey are sponsoring the main music stage this year.

“The sponsorship deal means we can put more money back into the hospice, and with every penny going back to patient care, this is a really important act of kindness.”

Daniel Davie, who is a partner at the estate agents said: “We are really pleased to be supporting our local hospice, and the music festival, which we know is a great family day out.

“We urge the public to get behind their local hospice and come and support this amazing festival.”

St John’s Hospice needs to raise £3,800 every day to keep your local hospice open.
