Musical acts from Beds, Herts, Bucks and Cambs will perform at a new one-day music festival to help raise money for Sue Ryder’s St John’s Hospice at Moggerhanger – easily reached from the A1 by following the A603 to Bedford.

The first Busk Till Dusk event is due to be held on Saturday within the 18 acres of the hospice grounds from 3pm to 10pm.

Bands, singers and musicians of every type of music from classical to rock, acoustic and all in between, will perform in the open air, on various stages set up around the grounds.

Alex Small, lead singer of group Honest John, said: “We are really excited to be playing at the first ever Busk Till Dusk music festival. 

“It’s going to be a great day for all of the bands and I’m sure the competition will help bring out the best in all of us.”

Event organiser Fay Boissieux said: “We are so excited to be holding our first ever festival.

“The event will raise lots of money for St John’s and this means a lot for some of our band members who have personal experience of the patient care it offers.”
