The big news from the Milford on Sea Arts and Music Festival is that the Internationally regarded “Counterfeit Beatles” will headline Saturday Night. The guys are a very special Beatles Tribute band that provide a fantastic set, playing all the classic Beatles hits that everyone knows and loves. www.counterfeitbeatles.com
The Milford on Sea Arts & Music Festival also now has a new website, with loads of information, and the organising committee are gearing up for another great event from Thursday July 12th to Sunday 15th 2012.
The free festival once again brings together the best local talent with some from further afield to provide a unique experience for locals and visitors alike. The event is free to attend and there will be events taking place on the main stage, in the licensed marquee and at various places around the village.
The annual Arts and Music Festival has been running successfully for 11 years and celebrates and promotes the high quality and sheer number of talented local people involved in music and the arts. As a registered charity the festivals raison d’etre is to promote art and culture in the local area, and to give an outlet for performers of all kinds to promote their art and to develop cultural understanding for all. Any excess profit from the festival is donated to support local charities within and outside the arts.
The festival will something for all ages and tastes from Thursdays Folk and acoustic evening to the classical finale on Sunday afternoon. Everyone is welcome so bring your family and enjoy all that is on offer this year.
As a free festival the organisers are indebted to the army of volunteers and the generous Sponsors and Friends that support the event financially. The event only runs due to the good grace of an army of volunteers giving up their time and being prepared to get stuck into the myriad of tasks that make the festival such a success. Even buying a programme or a T-shirt really helps the cause. If you have some time and would like to get involved, or would like to enjoy the benefits of becoming a Friend, please contact Sean Reeves at:firstname.lastname@example.org | 01590 644777 | 07966 449826
This is a Milford on Sea event not to miss, so may be worth putting the dates in your diary now.
