This year's Wizzafest moves from Bromsgrove to Droitwich

Droitwich Editorial 28th Jun, 2016 Updated: 17th Oct, 2016

A POPULAR festival which has raised more than £15,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support in the 11 years it has been held will have a new home this year.

Wizzafest, formerly held in Stoke Prior in Bromsgrove, will take place at Dodderhill Equestrian Centre from July 21 to 24 – the first weekend after children break up from school.

The event, which provides plenty of fun for all the family, will kick off the school summer holidays in style.

Wizzafest sprang to life from humble beginnings as a fund-raising BBQ and hog roast for family and friends.

As the festival has continued to raise money for Macmillan, it has also grown organically. Recent festivals have attracted average crowds of 2,000 people with 100 per cent of all profits donated to the charity.

While the festival is family focused, it also attracts a sprinkling of young people too.

The line-up features local talent from in and around Bromsgrove, Droitwich and the rest of Worcestershire and includes The Ron Jeremy Band, Someone At The Door, Stuart Bishop, Bonnylou and the Blackwell Concert Band.

For the children, there will be horse-riding and interactive activities with groups like the Kinetic Sports Club and with Trades Art Storytellers.

At £15 a pitch, stall holders are also welcome to join in the fun for an affordable weekend which fosters a community spirit and celebrates it with music, dance and creative fun.

Weekend tickets are available from www.wizzafest.com and all other tickets are available at the gate.

Entry is just £4 with this article.
