After taking a year off in 2018, Balstock 2019 is set to be bigger than ever - with more venues hosting gigs and even more choice of music genres including DJs, acoustic, punk, jazz, ska, metal, reggae, poetry, rock, choirs and even a burlesque stage.

Punters are encouraged to pop donations in buckets and buy merchandise to raise as much money as possible for the five charities supported by the festival this year - Mind in Mid Herts, Darcie's Wish, Luna Animal Rescue, Essex & Herts Air Ambulance and Baldock Town Community Sports Facility.

Organiser G La Roche said: "Myself, my committee, my beloved reps and volunteers, as well as the pubs and venue staff, are gearing up for what might just be the busiest weekend Baldock has ever seen.

"The weather is looking good, the merchandise has turned up and I can't wait to get cracking!"
