Music festival in full swing
ORGANISERS Of a fundraising festival in Knotty Green prepared for the rain today, but were pleased it wasn't needed.
The Red Lion is holding Knotfest this weekend to raise money for the Thames Valley Adventure Playground in Maidenhead- for children and adults with special needs.
Beverley Craven opened the festival today and then treated the audience to a song.
Then bands have been playing all day on the two stages- one outside under a marquee and one inside the pub.
Landlady Tina Massie said they put up extra cover in the beer garden when they saw the forecast, but were pleased it wasn't yet needed.
At 4pm this afternoon they had already raised £1,700- two thirds of the final total at the end of the weekend will go to the playground and one third will go to the Beaconsfield Round Table to a charity of its choice.
Tina said: "People are very willing to support the charity. Everything we do is so up front- every penny goes to the charity. That is why we do a rolling total throughout the weekend."
At 6pm today Cougar Blue Jam Band will be playing, followed by the BBZ Allstars at 7pm, Tiny Tina Turner at 8pm and Big Bob and the Fried at 9pm.
Tomorrow there will be more bands from 12 to 6pm.
