News : Rockin' On The Rocks
There will be a number of food stalls on the field, which the charity is making further margin on as the farmer is supplying the meat at cost. There will also be a lot going on for the kids with a bouncy castle, ice cream, treasure hunt, etc if the riders want to bring family along. Also on Saturday afternoon there will be a mountain bike relay changing over on the field and a raft race up on Killington Lake if any of the families want to get involved.
The live music is starting mid-afternoon, running through to 10pm with the following line up:
Kev Kendal - The Acoustic Mod. You won’t be able to hold back as you find yourself singing along with Kev as he plays you some of the all time greatest Soul, Mod and Brit Pop songs
Old Rope - 4 piece Blackpool band playing their brand of Rock and Blues
STRANGEWAYS - A classic Punk Rock band, cracking out LOUD classic rock from favourite including The Clash, The Sex Pistols, The Buzzcocks and many more.
Rich and the Poor - Local Sedbergh band who have made a name for themselves in these part playing a mixture of classic covers as well as original songs.
Ska Face - A 10 piece Ska band playing classic Ska and 2 Tone including Madness, The specials, Bad Manners and many more!
There is also a Young Farmers Tug of War competition on Saturday evening, so if the riders have the energy, they are more than welcome to enter a team or 2.
The bar is being sponsored by Robinsons Brewery "Light Brigade Beers" in association with Help for Heroes and the rock group Iron Maiden. It will be open all afternoon and evening with a Prossecco and Gin bar for the ladies.
So, it is all coming together Mike. The local promotion really kicks off next week and we will be telling everyone how pleased we are to be supported by you guys and encouraging spectators to come along. Thanks again.
