Beaconsfield pub music festival brings in thousands for charity
A WEEKEND of live music came to Beaconsfield last week, with the second instalment of a popular charity music festival.
KnotFest, which returned to the Red Lion in Knotty Green after raising £3000 last year, saw 25 artists play from Friday to Sunday over two stages.
Pop star Beverley Craven, best known for her huge 1991 hit ‘Promise Me’, opened the festival and also treated the audience to a song.
And after a mammoth three days of bands, solo artists and tribute acts, Storm Warning took to the stage to headline on Sunday night.
Landlady Tina Massie, along with oragnisers ‘Cougar’ Bob Newell and her husband Bob Massie, just missed out on last year’s total, raising £2,810.39 for the Thames Valley Adventure Playground for children and adults with special needs.
Tina said: " It was a staggering total raised at Knotfest2 for children at the Thames Valley Adventure Playground and other local charities.
"People were very willing to support the charity. Everything we do is so up front- every penny goes to the charity.
"Thank you to everyone who contributed!"
The night before the festival, Tina returned from a glitzy ceremony in London, where the Red Lion was nominated for national Entertainment Pub of the Year at the leading pub trade publication’s annual awards.
Tina was also featured on this year’s Independent on Sunday ‘Happy List’, which lists 100 people nationwide who give up their own time to improve the lives of others.
