As many of you know my wonderful mother who is like superwomen and is putting on a mini festival every year for the past 5 years now. And now I say mini but I don’t know why because it keeps growing every year!
Hundreds of people attended last year which was amazing. These greatest thing about it is that my mother does not earn a penny from doing this work she gives it all to charity, so admirable!
Some of you may have heard of it, some not, so here is the low down the day is amazing but I am biased but it consists of around 8 acts/bands/performances; ranging from bands like The Vigilantes, The Ultraviolet, Fusion, Scapa Flow , The Strellies ,Status Quote, to solo acts such as Matty Haynes, Phoebe Ophila to acts like 50 sniffs and Stuart playing the ukulele. The music ranges from all years and genres fitting for all the family.
The field is based in Frampton, hence ‘FRAM’ fest, it’s the field very next St Marys Frampton church and the whole thing is organised by its committee. No one earns a penny it goes all into the church. The field is full of things to do also while listening to the music it changes every year but most of the times things such as, a hotdog and burger stand spend the day with us and also, a sweet stall, potato chip stall, curry, stir fry and Mexican style food stall, a licensed bar, a forever living stall, a vintage clothing and furniture stalls, fair rides, bouncy slides, skinners ice-cream and I’m not joking so much more for a little field and festival it’s a rather big turnout!
So the people, the people make the day, the bands, all the help, the committee and of course you guys that come along adding the money to the church and for charity you make the day. The sun shines and everyone bring picnics, blankets, chairs and alcohol and spend the day from around 1pm to 8pm.
The doors open at 1pm and the bands begin at 2pm so you have time to get down, ready and settle ready to watch all the performances. When I think about how much there is to do, it would be a great day even without the bands everyone is chatting and having fun and it brings families out and friends together. It fit all age groups all day long. The day does finish around 8pm usually with a DJ with fab music to get you ready for a night out after maybe? It’s always the last Saturday in June every year and this year it will be on the 24th June 2017.
Ticket prices so this year the price will be for an adult £5 for a children £1.50. Remember all the money goes to charity so you doing a great cause and in trade for a fabulous day at FRAMFEST
