In BGMF 2009 by admin

5th JULY 2009

After the rip roaring success of BGMF 08 its time to do it all again, bigger & better than ever before, preparations are well advance with regard to this years festival, which will be held once again on the Village Green, at the heart of our village, on Sunday the 5th July commencing at midday & running through to 10.00pm. If you have been before all the usuals, will be there together with a few new added features. Being our 5th & now annual Music Festival, we are making a positive move to bring in acts that will bring a vibrant feel to the festival plus a couple of old favourites to get you bopping ! ! ! ! ! !

For example this year we welcome the return of the Rachel Hawker & the Remedies who will take to the stage at approx. 7.30pm on the big day. In addition we welcome for the first time a wide selection of new and established local musical talent, which we hope will make this years festival the best yet, building upon the phenomenal success of last years event that raised nearly £3500 for the Dame Vera Lynn Trust, supporting the School for Parents at near by Five Oaks.

This years Festival will once again support Chestnut Tree House, the only children’s hospice in Sussex & we hope to raise an even more impressive sum for this year’s nominated charity.

The festival will commence at midday & in addition to Rachel Hawker & the Remedies, will feature Gren Bartley & Tom Kitching, The Bootleggers, The Blue Sunrise Band, Nicolette Street, The Saviours of Soul, Malfunction & Sirens. Then to top it all the Festival will close with a headline performance by non other than Murdoch’s Crazy Eye’s. Further to all this activity on the Village Green, for the first time “Gary’s Live Music Club” will be providing over three hour Folk & Acoustic music within the Village Hall, during the afternoon, featuring the likes of Gary Holder, Heartree, Playing Rapunzel, Iris Bishop & Julie Roberts followed by the return of “HouseProud” who will once again rock the Village hall to its very foundations, with four hours of House Music in the evening, presenting a history of House Music featuring DJs Jonathan Dodson, Marky Marc, Holly-Bee & Brian Mole.

It is going to be an amazing day of live music, so whether you’re a veteran attendee of the Barns Green Music Festival, or are a BGMF virgin, looking to attend for the first time, you are all welcome to come & enjoy a great family orientated day out, with some of if not the best music in town ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !.

And with your help we will raise a lot of money for our nominated charity “Chestnut Tree House”
