Folkfest got a final farewell on Saturday (September 3rd) when a
day-long music event was held in the town.
a decade of musical fun and frolics, the final Folkfest was held
last year but a special day-long music event was held in The Princess
on Saturday to raise funds for Hillview Junior Carnival Club.
by rockers Leatherat, there were also performances by Little Thief
plus long-standing Folkfest favourites Hedgepig, Daft Folk, Shades
of Rock, Nick Elswood and a stripped-down version of Vermin.
proceeds went to Burnham's Hillview Junior Carnival Club, with £400
raised on the day and £1,000 over this year's two events -
including one at Easter.
Folkfest Chairman Dom Wills told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "The weather
was not great and that seems to have put off some people from coming,
but we had a great event with some superb music to see out Folkfest."
new event, the all-new 'BOSfest' music festival, is set to make
its debut in 2017.
