The countdown has begun for the Bures Music Festival, which runs from July 8 to 12 and promises five days of fantastic music.
This year, organisers have worked harder than ever to ensure children enjoy the festival as much as their parents with child-friendly food, bouncy castle and slide, and face painting stalls.
The not-for-profit event has raised almost £170,000 for charity since the first festival in 1997 and, this year, hopes to bring in more money than ever. It takes place at Bures Recreation Ground in Nayland Road,
Tickets to the festival are selling fast and, with the event starting next week, organisers, in conjunction with the Suffolk Free Press, are giving away one pair of 5-day festival tickets, and one set of family tickets for Sunday.

The festival line-up includes British Blues Awards winners Jo Harman and Marcus Bonfanti with their bands, lined up for Friday night.
On Saturday, after a day of rock, blues, funk and soul acts, Purple Rain and Jive Talkin’ are set to bring the sounds of Prince and the Bee Gees to the festival to get the crowds dancing into the night.
Sunday’s amazing festival finale features London ska band The Kubricks, The Essex Blues Brothers and The Stones – thought to be the UK’s best Rolling Stones tribute act.
Ticket prices remain low, camping’s still free, and there’ll be bouncy castles, stalls, food from the award-winning Benson Blakes.
