Much-Loved Music Festival Is Back
Taking place on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th July at King George V Playing Fields in Farnborough, Music in the Park promises an amazing line-up of tribute acts which will get you jumping up off your picnic blanket and grooving to the beat. Saturday is ‘Legends’ night, and features Blondie tribute act Totally Blondie, David Bowie tribute act The Bowie Experience, and Bob Marley tribute act The Marley Experience. Sunday’s ‘Rock & Roll Party’ features music from tribute acts to Elvis, The Everly Brothers, Buddy Holly, Roy Orbison and Brenda Lee.
This amazing and much-loved music festival has been a regular event in the local calendar for many years now. Organised by the Rotary Club of Farnborough, it raises money to support local hospice care charity Phyllis Tuckwell, which provides supportive and end of life care for local patients and families who are living with an advanced or terminal illness such as cancer.
Usually a biennial event, the festival wasn’t held in 2021 because of Covid restrictions, so Phyllis Tuckwell is delighted to announce that this year it will be back with a bang!
“We’re so pleased to be able to announce the return of Music in the Park after such a long pause,” said Laura Moody, Income Generation Innovation Manager at Phyllis Tuckwell. “We would like to say a huge thank you to the Rotary Club of Farnborough for their continued support in organising this amazing family fun weekend of music and dancing. Special thanks also go to our headline sponsors Farnborough Airport, Herrington Carmichael, RM Carpets, Branston Adams & The Village Hotel.”
All of the money raised by Music in the Park will go directly to help fund the care which Phyllis Tuckwell provides. Every day it supports over 250 patients, relatives and carers – in their own homes, in the community, at the Hospice in Farnham and at the Beacon Centre in Guildford – through medical and nursing care, therapies, counselling, social work advice and practical support. However, as the NHS/Government usually only covers about 20% of its costs, it has to raise over £25,000 a day, and therefore relies heavily on fundraising events such as this.
Tickets are priced at £25 until 31st May and £30 thereafter (but will be higher on the day). Tickets for children aged 5-12 years are £2.50, and under 5’s are free. Buy your tickets now at www.pth.org.uk/music-in-the-park and dust off your dancing shoes ready for an amazing weekend of family fun!
