Blues and Rock Fundraising Festival Countdown!

Jazmine Ava Band at the Blues and Rock Garden PartyPreparations for the 2011 Blues and Rock Garden Party are well under way. This Saturday the secluded festival venue in Colchester, Essex will be filled with throngs of happy people partying to some lovely festival tunes, eating fabulous foods from around the world and enjoying the refreshments of the obligatory beer tent. For anyone who hasn’t had the opportunity to attend the most popular party in town, we urge you to get yourselves down there!

To help raise funds for charity work in Africa, this year there will be performances from the Groove Busters, Audio Pirates, Jazmine Ava Band, The 366 and flamenco guitarist Tahir. Plus a fundraising art installation by ChewingLard, Vegetarian food by Monique, homemade foods of the world by Rachel Balm and of course the on-stage prize draw and auction of great goodies by Tom Bowden. Last year’s on-stage antics saw the auctioning off of one of Tom’s colleagues which raised an extra £50 for Building Futures in Malawi.

As every penny counts, we urge you to buy a ticket through Just Giving or on the door and join in the fun. The weekend is set to be a sunny one, with plenty of Pimms, people and a jolly good party atmosphere.
