Festival at village pub

A MINI-MUSIC festival will be held at a village pub to raise money for charity.

The event at The Edwardstone White Horse will take place on Sunday, September 11.

It aims to raise funds and awareness for the La Isla Foundation, a South American charity which works to identify the causes of chronic kidney disease.

The condition has reached an epidemic scale in the country and has particularly affected agricultural workers in the sugar cane industry.

Bands performing at the festival include Spacecake, a Polstead group which plays the acoustic banjo, and Route 66, a 1960s and 70s-style soul and rock band.

There will also be a raffle and face-painting during the festival, which will run from midday to 6pm.

Entry is £5 for adults and £3 for under 16s.
