Bures Music Festival dishes out £15,000 among more than a dozen good causes




Music-lovers who enjoyed last year’s sell-out Bures Music Festival helped boost charity donations to the tune of £15,000.

Charities stepped up to receive their share of the festival profits at a presentation evening held in the village by the Bures Music Festival Committee.

Peter Harries, festival committee chairman, said: “These amazing organisations and the work they do are the reasons we all give our time freely to organise the festival.”

“We are all now busy organising the 2020 festival and hope to deliver an event that’s as successful as 2019,” added Mr Harries.
