More than 300 people are expected to dance the night away on the Woodbridge river bank at a Marathon music festival set to raise money for charity.
The event – organised by local businessman Tony Moorcroft – is part of a 50-day fundraising mission to make £10,000 for Alzheimer’s Research UK.
Tony’s father Austin was diagnosed with the condition last year and he wants to help raise awareness of the effects of the illness on a family.
He said: “Alzheimer’s is a cruel illness that robs a person – and their loved ones – of their characteristics as well as their memories.
“I felt like I needed to do something proactive to address everything that has happened so I’ve set myself a challenge and it’s been incredibly well-received in my local community.
“As a result, we are kicking off with a spectacular music festival on Easter Saturday.”
The event will be held on Saturday, March 31st at the Tea Hut by the River Wall and includes 10 performers – seven Woodbridge DJs and three live performances from local singers Caswell, Sorrdes & Peter Hepworth.
It will include a licensed bar and BBQ and starts at 6pm, finishing at 11.30pm.
Entry is £5 in advance or £10 on the door.
