3:00pm Monday 4th July 2011 in News
Toploader are expected to headline a major Help For Heroes fundraising festival.
The 2011 Collaboration Festival on the weekend of August 26-28 is expected to draw crowds of 5,000 with the aim of raising £45,000 for the charity.
The festival in Highworth, Swindon, is a collaboration of musicians, comedians, artists and burlesque performers.
Other attractions include tribute acts, a steam fair, silent disco, dance tent, DJs, circus skills and children’s workshops.
Organiser Michael Quinton said: “The high point for me will be at the end when we have a big cheque to hand out to the charity. We are hoping to raise £45,000 and if we get a sell-out crowd we will do that without a problem.”
Armed forces, 999 personnel together and full-time students are entitled to a 15 per cent discount.
