Glassonbury to rock Maryport
Last updated at 19:40, Thursday, 28 June 2012
Who tribute band, The Whodlums, will top the bill at Maryport’s Glassonbury next Saturday.
Glasson Rangers Rugby League Club is holding its fourth festival to raise money for charity.
The festival was started in 2009 to raise money for Help for Heroes.
At that stage organisers had not thought beyond a one-off event. It has become so popular, however, that it has now raised in excess of £20,000 for causes, including the Lillie-Mai Jackson Trust.
This year’s line-up also includes Collision, Mingo’s Locker, Gavin McKew, Escobars, Chelsea Reynolds and Anthony Flicklister.
The chosen charities are Help for Heroes and the Teenage Cancer Trust.
James Moore, Glasson Rangers spokesman, said the festival has been moved out of the club car park and into the training field alongside.
He said: “We have spoken to police, council and others involved with health and safety and it was decided that the festival should be taken out of the car park as it was too small and too close to the road.
“Unfortunately, because we have moved to the field, there is no room for a bouncy castle this year, but there will be plenty to do including small fairground rides and face painting.”
The event will run from 1pm to 8pm. Tickets are available from the Glasson Rangers clubhouse on Ewanrigg Road, Sportzone on Church Street, Elegant Touch on Curzon Street and the Laundry Basket on the Solway estate.
