A MUSIC festival – Rugby’s first large outside gathering since the pandemic began – is coming to Caldecott Park on August Bank Holiday Monday.
Organised by the three Rotary Clubs in Rugby, the Rugby Music festival will feature a line-up of local musicians.
They include young jazz violinist Ben Holder, the Sean Quigley Band, The Dukes Jetty, Amie Boyd, Adrian Heywood, Rugby’s Got Talent winners Paul Sammon and Kieran Taylour, and finalists Jess Lea and Oliwia Dragon.
There will be stalls from local small businesses and charities, street food and a beer tent.
Organisers hope to attract a crowd of five thousand or more, to raise much-needed funds for local good causes.
President of Rugby Dunsmore Rotary Club Mike Folly said: “Our local performers have been really hard hit during the pandemic – the same with catering facilities, charities and businesses. We all need a lift to our spirits so we hope everyone will come and enjoy a great day, have fun and raise funds for local good causes.
“We are deeply appreciative of the support of our sponsors at Come Home To Houlton. Without their support this event would not be possible.”
