The Free Press has teamed up with the organisers of LeeStock to offer readers the chance to win two pairs of weekend tickets.

Held in memory of 21-year-old Lee Dunford, from Sudbury, the music festival is being held in the grounds of Melford Hall in Long Melford on May 24 and 25.

Now in its seventh year, the event will include performances from headliners The Lightning Seeds – well-known for their famous Three Lions collaboration with Frank Skinner and David Baddiel – as well as Acoustic TV and lots of local bands.

“There are some great bands playing,” said Pete Keogh, one of the festival’s organisers.

“And because it is in memory of Lee, there is a real family-friendly feel to it.

“It is maybe an alternative to going to other festivals, such as V Festival, and people can enjoy some Brit-pop and spend time with the family.”

Held at Melford Hall, the festival has raised in excess of £50,000 for the Willow Foundation – the charity which supported Lee and his family as he battled Hodgkin’s lymphoma, before his death in 2006.

It has grown from an event staged at the White Horse pub in North Street into an annual festival, which this year counts McDonald’s and Carlsberg among its sponsors.

“We’ve had to build a festival from scratch, but have taught ourselves a lot over the years,” said Mr Keogh, a friend of Lee. “Preparations are on track and tickets are selling well.”

For a chance to win a pair of weekend tickets, each valued at £30, simply complete the coupon on this page (no photocopies) and return it to Suffolk Free Press, Borehamgate, Sudbury, Suffolk, CO10 2EE, before 5pm on May 16.

Winners will be picked at random and notified within five days of the competition closing.
