Festival season is finally upon us and a local charity shop in Glastonbury is holding their own – in the shop window! The team at Cancer Research Glastonbury staged their first ever Festival in a Window in 2013 and following its success, its back again this year on the 21st June.
15 different acts came to perform in the shop window last year all helping to raise awareness and valuable funds to aid in life saving research for cancer. The festival which was part of worthy causes day at the Glastonbury fringe raised over £500 on the day and the Glastonbury team are looking to smash that target again this year with plenty more acts coming to take to the window.
‘We love the vibrant musical scene here in Glastonbury so what better way to raise money than showcasing the incredible array of local talent we have’ said Shop Manager Becky Clarke. ‘Last year we were overwhelmed by the support of the local musicians and community that helped make the festival possible so we are more than a little excited to be into our second year’.
Acts already confirmed include Stumblefoot, Duncan Batey, Steve Henderson, Rough Around The Edges, Chloe Warren, Vela, Matt Witt and the Weston Brass Band will also be making an appearance. Final acts and times will be published soon.
