Quarry Fest for music fans

Tickets are now officially on sale for Quarry Fest… An outdoor music event being held to raise much needed funds for Shropshire’s Hope House Children’s Hospice, returning to the Quarry Park for another year.

Quarry Fest will be taking place on September 1st at the Quarry in the heart of Shrewsbury and will raise vital funds to enable the hospice to provide care and support to local terminally ill children and their families.

The main stage will feature bands such as X Factor star Laura White, Made in Liverpool (a Beatles Tribute band), The Ronaldos, All Fired Up and The Clocktower. There will also be an acoustic stage where Ashley James and Jodie Mae Davies will be performing.

Alongside all this exciting music there will be locally sourced catering vans and a bar, offering top quality refreshments for concert-goers.

Quarry Fest has been made possible by kind sponsorship from Shrewsbury Company Select A Skip. This sponsorship of the event means that the whole £10 ticket price goes directly to the hospice in its entirety.

Two thousand tickets have now gone on sale in the county and they can be bought from www.theticketsellers.co.uk They are also available from various outlets including the Hope House shop in Shoplatch Shrewsbury, the SY1 Salon on Dogpole, the Fusion Hair Studio in Mardol and the Hope House Fundraising Office in Morda, Oswestry.

Organiser of the event and Hope House Fundraiser Kelly Goodall said “In a year when donations are down in general this event will be hugely important in helping us generate vital funds to keep our services running for the families who depend on them. It will certainly be a fantastic fun event with lots of fresh talent from local bands!”

Anyone who would like to find out more information or who wishes to book tickets, is encouraged to contact the fundraising office of Hope House on 01691 671671. Under 16’s must be accompanied by an adult at the festival.
