X Factor finalist in Ashwell charity gig
X FACTOR finalist Danyl Johnson and singer-songwriter Scarlette Fever will be performing at the charity music festival ClaireFest on September 3.
The open air event takes place at Elbrook Meadows in Ashwell in memory of Claire Stanley, the former landlady of The Three Tuns in the village, who lost her battle with cancer in June last year, aged 48.
Her husband, Darrell, and her family founded a charitable trust – The Claire Stanley Trust – with the aim of raising funds to provide cancer treatment, care and research.
ClaireFest, which as well as live music will include magicians, sideshows, stalls, a food bar and a kids’ corner, will raise money for this cause.
Scarlette, who is fresh from a tour with band Mike and the Mechanics, is delighted to be performing at ClaireFest.
