A Studham concert to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee was such a success it’s turned into an annual event supporting children’s cancer charity CLIC Sargent.
Guitarist Ian Milne of the group Common People explained: “Studhambury has become an institution in the village. It’s a nice vibe and people are really, really keen to volunteer and take part.”
The 2015 event takes place in the Red Lion car park from 2pm on Saturday, September 12 and features the Common People as well as Toffees, Crowjayne SC, Flynn Laban, Bad Bones and The Alternative Rhythm & Sound Experience. There will also be a number of surprise guests.
Ian said: “The charity is close to villagers’ hearts because a local teenager, Heston Harris, has really benefitted from CLIC Sargent’s exceptional care.
“We’ve raised more than £8,000 at previous events and hope this year will be even better.”
He added: “It’s a fun way to spend a late summer Saturday afternoon and evening and a great opportunity to help CLIC Sargent.” Red Lion landlord Gary Ellis agreed: “Everyone is welcome to come and listen to our great home-grown local talent.”
