St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice teams up with the King family for 3rd annual Midsummer Music event
On Saturday 4th July, from 4:00pm – 10:30pm, St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice will be teaming up with the King family and Brightwater Gardens in Saxby to host an evening of music in memory of Jules King.
Local bands will be performing live from 4.30pm and guests are encouraged to bring a picnic to enjoy in the idyllic surroundings of the gardens. There will also be pimms for sale throughout the evening.
Ben Petts, Community Events Fundraiser for St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice, said:
“I am thrilled that the King family have approached St Barnabas for a third year to get involved with this event. Brightwater Gardens is the perfect location to enjoy a picnic with friends, watch the sunset and listen to local up and coming bands who have donated their time for free to support this event.”
In March 2012, Jules King died following a 14 month battle with bowel cancer. Since then Alex and Harry King have taken part in a number of fundraising events to continue Jules’ lasting legacy.
Ben said: “The sheer determination and drive of the King family is truly inspirational. Alex and Harry King were teenagers when their mother died and since then they have raised over £25,000, started their own charity all the while studying at college and university. “
Nine local soloists and bands will be providing live entertainment throughout the evening.
The headline act is UK Headz, a seven piece line-up covering popular songs from The Killers, Kings of Leon and The Jam.
For the second consecutive year George Harris & Alfie Norman will be returning to perform acoustic covers and local indie band, The Captains.
Andy King said: “Midsummer Music was the brain child of my children Alex and Harry and made possible by the continued generous support of Chris and Jonathan at Brightwater Gardens.
“It gives the opportunity to showcase new local talent and all in the name of a good cause. I feel that it is a fitting legacy to my late wife Jules and I am immensely proud to be part of it.”
