HUNDREDS of revellers gathered for Frodsham’s first charity music festival, a sell- out success which raised £7,800 for Halton Haven Hospice.
The event last Sunday was staged from 2-10pm in the grounds of Netherton Hall pub, Chester Road, and drew a capacity crowd, with all 450 tickets, priced at £10, snapped up within a fortnight.
The festival line-up comprised five popular local soft rock bands – Junction 12, Relode, Retro, X-Stress and Two Rooms – who spent six months planning the event with Netherton Hall manager/licensee Kelly Martin.
They were so delighted with the turnout, they are now aiming to develop the event into an annual fundraiser for local charities.
“Everyone who came said it was the most amazing thing in Frodsham for years,” said Kelly.
“People have been phoning and calling in to say how brilliant the festival was and how much they’d enjoyed it. I think it was because we spent so much time and energy making sure everything was in place and done properly. It turned out great and I definitely want it to happen here again.”
