Preview: Dinkey Donkey Do 2013 – A Day of Live Music In Aid Of Local Charities

At a time when we wax lyrical about the amount of hard work and time that goes into organising and promoting live music events and venues, it is perhaps fitting and just that we give a big heads up to this special musical extravaganza to be held at Birchwood Country Park, Warton, this Saturday. Following the highly successful Rock The Dead Donkey Festival which took place at the same venue in May, comes The Dinkey Donkey Do Festival, the second installment, which with an equal quality cast of bands and musicians, promises to be yet another day to remember. If it is anything like the first event back in May, which spanned over three days, then it will certainly be a cracker!

It’s not easy putting together a line-up of this quality all under one roof. All artists on the day have kindly offered their services for free and every penny raised from the sale of day festival wristbands goes to charity. Event organiser Paul Stevenson and his team have put in many hours and tireless promotion campaigns raising awareness of the one day festival. So it needs a response from local music fans in the area, who will hopefully turn out in very good numbers to support the event and the chosen charities involved. Paul has been a stalwart in arranging and promoting charity events such as this many times before, with many local charity organisations appreciating and benefitting from his efforts.

Performing on the day will be ten great bands and solo artists (See flyer below). Starting at 12.45pm and continuing through the day until midnight, the festival will feature a wide variety of musical styles and will cater for all tastes in a great venue suited totally to these type of events.

Also available will be very good value quality food, served all day, as well as a well stocked bar at reasonable prices. The onsite facilities are also very impressive, if required.

So if you want to be entertained by an eclectic mix of brilliant musicians to suit every taste, at ยฃ3 a wristband for the whole day or ยฃ5 on the door, it is an absolute steal!

As well as live music needing public support, so do the charities represented.
