Funds raised go towards restoring the church as well as covering the cost of putting on the festival, it starts at 7pm on the Thursday and entry is £4.

Doors are 7pm on the Friday night, where there will be live music and a raffle – entry goes up to £5.

Saturday is an all-day session, with the doors opening from 12noon and not closing until 11pm and it is £4 in.

Sunday, for those still wanting more, is 1pm to 3pm and is free to those with a festival glass or a donation is advised.
