Tribute acts set to rock for children’s charity

Posted by


Winston’s Wish, the charity for children who have been bereaved, is looking forward to an evening of rock and roll in Gloucestershire to raise much needed funds. A selection of the country’s best tribute acts are set to perform to raise much needed funds for the children’s charity.

Fans of Meat Loaf, The Beatles and more are invited to rock in aid of Winston’s Wish at July’s tribute festival. A percentage of profits from the event will help fund the support Winston’s Wish offer children who have been bereaved of a loved one.

The Appfest has been organised by Daniel Pardoe, the landlord at the Farmer’s Arms in Apperley. Tribute acts performing at the festival include Coldplace (Coldplay), The Doors Alive (The Doors), The Cheatles (The Beatles) and Rule The World (Take That).

The Farmer’s Arms Appfest event takes place on July 30th, starting at 11.30am, and takes place at the Farmer’s Arms in Lower Apperley, Gloucestershire. Tickets cost £25, with a pig roast, BBQ, large outdoor bar and children’s activities available, including a bouncy castle.

Anyone looking for further information about the event should contact Elizabeth Thatcher on ethatcher@winstonswish.org.uk or on 01242 515 157 or visit the event’s website.

Daniel Pardoe, landlord at the Farmer’s Arms in Apperley, said:

“We’re excited to support Winston’s Wish, a charity who do great work by supporting bereaved children and their families. I love putting on an unique event of this level for the local and surrounding community, which is a great family day in support of local charities.”

Elizabeth Thatcher, Community Fundraiser at Winston’s Wish, commented:

“We cannot wait to see all of these great tributes rocking out in aid of Winston’s Wish and can’t thank Daniel, the Farmer’s Arms and all of the acts enough for their support. We will be there on the day with a Winston’s Wish stand, so we’re excited to see everyone there!”
