Music 4 Life ready to rock

BEER’S summer extravaganza Music 4 Life takes place on July 3.

Beer Albion Football Club will be the venue for the 12-hour, non-stop feast of music featuring 15 bands. Among those who have pledged to take part, donating their services for free in aid of Hospiscare and the Devon Air Ambulance Trust, are the Blue Bishops, the Partly Animals and Dan Crisp. Streetheat Samba Band will kick things off in Jubilee Gardens before parading up to the football ground where the festival starts at noon.

There will be a jive class, a fun dog show, a magician and a bouncy castle for the children and lots of other games and activities to entertain children and adults alike. A selection of food and drinks stalls will cater to all tastes, with vegetarian options, currys, liquorice, smoothies, coffee and orange juice and local ales in the clubhouse. There will be a number of stalls including jewellery, crafts, ceramics and children’s books and crayons.

Organiser Annie Boalch said: “Tickets are still available and we’ve had lots more stalls say they want to take part recently. It’s getting bigger as we speak – I just hope it’s a nice day!
