It is the second year the event is being held, and runs from 12pm until 12am on Sunday, September 27.

Entry to the festival is free, but organisers are asking for a suggested donation of £5.

Bands who will perform on the day include Bad Touch, British Rejects and Painted Soul, among many others, and a raffle will also take place.

The charity also raised over £1500 at their second charity ball held at the end of May which included an appearance from Jeffrey Drayton and a live performance from Georgia Falls.
