St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice teams up with local Garden Centre to put on an evening of music in memory of Jules King
On Saturday, 5th July from 4:30pm – 10pm, St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice will be working alongside The Garden House Saxby and the King family to host an evening of live music from a variety of acts with all the proceeds donated to the Hospice.
The Garden House Saxby is an idyllic setting for a relaxing evening to enjoy a picnic with friends. The event is now in its second year to help raise funds for St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice in memory of Jules King and all those who are no longer with us.
Chris Neave, from the Garden House Saxby, said:
“We at The Garden House feel privileged to be providing the venue for the Midsummer Music Concert. We hope the evening will be a fantastic event raising much needed funds for St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice. “
Alex and Harry King sadly lost their mother Jules to Bowel Cancer in 2012. Since then the boys have devoted their free time to continuing their mother’s legacy by fundraising for St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice. The King boys have set up their own charity ‘Screw Cancer’ donating all the funds to St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice.
In March 2014 the boys had raised over £25,000 for St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice from various fundraising activities such as a 10K Run, a cake sale, live music events and more recently the brothers shaved their heads.
Becky Otter, Events Manager for St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice, said:
“The King boys are a true inspiration, they have exceeded all expectations by raising over £25,000 for the hospice, this is a massive achievement which they should be really proud off. St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice is truly grateful for their continued support.
“I am thoroughly looking forward to the event, I can not express how stunning the venue is – it’s the perfect setting for a live outdoor music event. Bring a picnic and a deck chair, sit back and enjoy an evening of live music in beautiful surroundings.”
Local singers, songwriters and musicians will be providing live entertainment throughout the evening. Eight acts will be performing including; Billy Hughes and Chris Duncombe from William Farr School, a duo playing the cello and violin. Local folk band ‘As Plain As Day’ will also be playing.
Also playing is ‘Hot Club’ of Lincoln Minster School, they are unique as they learn all music aurally and the musicians improvise over changes played by the rhythm section, making each performance different. Lifting the tempo is ‘The Captains’ a local indie band and closing the event is ‘UK Headz’ who will be performing popular covers.
Tickets for this event are £8.50 for adults and £4.00 for under 18’s. A family ticket is £20.00 (2 Adults, 2 Children). Please note that pets are not allowed at this event. Tickets are available from St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice www.stbarnabashospice.co.uk and from The Garden House Saxby (01673 878820). Tickets will also be available on the gate.
