LEISURE: Home Farm Fest is another BIG House of Fun!
ORGANISERS of the annual charity Home Farm Festival near Yeovil have thanked everyone for their support.
The festival took place from Friday to Sunday, June 9-11, 2017, and was another fantastic success as around 100 bands and solo singers performed over six stages to provide a marathon of music.
The weather was not too bad and although there was a bit of rain and wind – it certainly did not spoil the party which was held at Home Farm in Chilthorne Domer.
The festival is the biggest fundraiser of the year for the School in a Bag initiative which is part of the Piers Simon Appeal.
The PSA was formed following the death of former Preston School and Yeovil College student Piers Simon, aged 33, in the Boxing Day Asian Tsunami of 2004.
The School in a Bag initiative provides – what it says on the tin – a schoolbag packed full of everyday school equipment and eating utensils to thousands of children around the globe in poverty-stricken and disaster-affected countries.
The 2017 Home Farm Fest was the charity’s 12th with the first one having been held back in 2006.
As well as the music, there were plenty of other things to keep festival-goers entertained.
