Only one week to go before the
Kelvedon Community Festival gets underway. Don't forget to tell all your family and friends that the Recreation Ground in Kelvedon is the only place to be next Saturday from 12 noon until 7pm.
This free event, now in its 19th year, is organised and run by volunteers with the support of Kelvedon Parish Council, Braintree District Council, Sponsors and Advertisers.
THE MAIN STAGE arena will kick off at noon by a performance from Kelvedon Dance Studio. We have some superb acts lined up and all will be introduced by DJ Lloyd who will keep us entertained during band changeovers and keeping us informed of what’s going on throughout the day.
One thing that is new for this year is the new stage which replaces the two trailers which normally make up the platform for the performers. New insurance restrictions does not allow for trailers to be used for anything else but haulage. So we would like to take this opportunity to thank both BT Cullam and Simarco for their help in previous years. We are going to miss admiring the skill of the drivers as they reverse a 40ft trailer up The Chase and holding up the high street traffic.
THE PINK SHED STAGE is once again hosted by unsurprisingly THE PINK SHED. Thank you for Polly and Tom who have once again put on a fantastic line-up for our enjoyment. This music loving pair have also helped with the organising of today’s event by being part of our committee. Polly did a awesome fundraiser for us earlier in the year and for those that missed it don’t worry there could well be another to raise funds for next year’s 20th Festy. Check out Polly Haynes on Facebook she has just released her first single.
The Silent Disco tent is being sponsored by 3D MarComms and features DJ Toph, DJ Joshwa, Rich Shaw, DJ Si, DJ Biscotti, SVNTY6 and Jamie Kelly. Playing everything from Club Classics, House, Hip Hop, and 80s and 90’s Dance.
The KIDZ ZONE is being helped by local hairdressers, The Hair Lounge who once again who will be braiding hair throughout the day. Congratulations to the Hair Lounge 47 who have recently scooped awards at the British Hair and Beauty Awards.
