First published 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.
