Festival ploughs into tenth year

Nestled in a little valley in rural North Herts, a country pub hosts its 10th day-long music festival on Saturday.

The ever-friendly Ploughstock, held at The Plough in the hamlet of Ley Green near Kings Walden takes place from midday until late with seven acts, including Bill Lennon and Andy Skelton.

Around 500 people are expected with camping on offer for those who want to stay over.

Entry is free and all money from the programme, bucket collections on the day and a generation donation from the caterers goes to support Garden House Hospice, St Mary’s Church fund in Kings Walden and the RNLI.
