G-Festival organiser Jacqui Gibson said: “We’re delighted G-Festival is returning for the fourth year, it just gets better each year. We’ve had amazing support and sponsorship pledged from local businesses.

“The event is predominately volunteer led, with many residents giving up time to work at the event. G-Festival wouldn’t be possible without the generosity of the local community, and large numbers of people attending – all helping towards our charitable cause.”
