Orpington community will come together to enjoy Petts Woodstock 2017

By Luke King in Entertainment

THE Orpington community is getting ready to come together for a one-day music festival that raises money for local good causes.

This year’s Petts Woodstock festival takes place at the Petts Wood War Memorial Hall and Gardens on Saturday, August 5 and features 16 of the best local bands on two stages.

There will be a licensed bar, a food stall with a BBQ serving hotdogs, burgers, sausages, vegetarian food and sweet treats, as well as face painting and music to suit all tastes.

The annual event, which starts at noon and finishes at midnight, raises money for local charities including Petts Wood Playgroup, The Maypole Project, SNARL, The Petts Wood War Memorial Hall, Second Chance Animal Rescue and St Christopher’s Hospice.

Entrance is £10, payable on the day at the gate, though children under 12 go free and concessions are available for families.

Festival founder Kieron Jarrold said: “Last year’s event was another spectacular success and enjoyed by the thousands who attended.” The event is now run by Jo Corteen.
