TitchFest back for 2015

TitchFest, which raises money for the neonatal and children’s surgery fund, is back at The White Lady in Worstead this month.

Last year, the three-day musical event raised more than £2,000 for charity, and 2015 promoises more bands and special guests, including a special appearance by 80s band The Jets.

TitchFest isthe brainchild of Paul ‘Titch’ Hagon, who runs Rhythmic PA Hire. He started the event after his then four-year-old son, Andrew, had major surgery to remove lung cysts and spent months in a children’s ward.

Paul realised there was a lack of basic equipment that the hospital needed desperately, so he got together with his music industry contacts and close friend Mark Thompson, who works at The White Lady and had first-hand experience of the hospital children’s ward when his nephew was born six weeks early.

The event starts on Friday evening, June 19, and runs through until June 21.. There will be music alongside fun for the children, vintage tractors and a real ale festival.

Paul said: “This year’s festival is going to be even bigger and we hope to raise more than last year.”

Entry is £5 each (children free) and £10 each for a weekend ticket (Friday night to Sunday night).
