SUMMER vibes will be ringing out across Great Alne later this month when the village plays host to its first ever music festival.

Alne Fest will be happening on Saturday, 23rd June, from 4pm to 9pm, at Great Alne Memorial Hall.

The event is a family-friendly fundraiser being organised by the Friends of Great Alne School PTA.

There will be live music on specially-built outdoor stages, a barbecue, bar, bouncy castle and a variety of stalls offering plenty of fun and games and festival vibes – from flower garlands to face painting.

Alne Fest is being organised by a small band of PTA volunteers, all hoping to raise as much money as possible to support Great Alne School.

Abby Ratcliffe, PTA chair, said: “This is a real first for us and big event for the school and village so we’re really hoping the whole community gets behind us to make it a success.

“We have some great bands lined-up, including groups from Alcester Academy, all performing on a stage we’re going to build outdoors especially for Alne Fest.

“We want to create a proper festival vibe; showcasing local talent to support our local school while everybody comes together for a really good time.”

Tickets can be bought at www.pta-events.co.uk/greatalne or in person from Classic Clutter, High Street, Alcester.
