HospFest is ready to rock your world!

A music festival in aid of the Tarporley War Memorial Hospital will be held in October.

HostFest, the brainchild of Mike Linsell, Brian Blake and Ken Wood, promises to be a musical extravaganza in aid of the hospital. The Initial idea for this multi-genre musical festival came from a desire to help the independent community facility.

The festival, which will be held at Tarporley Community Centre on Saturday 21st October, will be split into two parts. From 4pm there will a tea dance with cream teas provided by the Co-op and from 7pm the evening will bring a selection of music from The Spitting Feathers and many more.

Tickets are £6 for the afternoon and £10 for the evening, however, if you want to experience all that HospFest has to offer and stay all day, then that will cost you just £12. It is for charity after all.

The tickets will be available soon and can be bought from Swaffield’s, Blagg’s and Tarporley Hospital Reception, so make sure you follow @Tarporley_WMH on Twitter to find out when they are on sale and keep up to date with bands and groups who have signed up to play.

Tarporley War Memorial Hospital is running at a deficit and without events like these, raising much needed awareness and funds, it simply could not serve the community the way that it has done for nearly 100 years. Being one of only a few remaining independent Hospital facilities providing both in-patient and out-patient care to the community, while not being a NHS Hospital, is something Tarporley and its surrounding villages should be proud of.
