Following the success of last year’s event, Hardie Park in Stanford-le-hope will be staging the second SS17 Community Festival on Sunday 1st July between 12pm and 6pm. Rob Groves, CEO of Friends of Hardie Park said, ‘It’s back and it’s bigger and better than last year. We have an awesome line up of acts and entertainment with band Quo’d headlining on the main stage alongside traditional family entertainment including bouncy castles, petting zoo and an appearance from the amazing Calum Courtney, our local BGT contestant. There’s something for everyone! The 19th Stanford Music Festival is taking place on Saturday 30th June on Billet Lane so it promises to be a smashing weekender for the locals.’

The event is free to attend. There will be parking available on the day with thanks to local school’s Hassenbrook Academy and St Joseph’s School. Access will be via Manor Road entrance SS17ONY and will be £3 for the day. All proceeds will help to sustain the delivery of the event year on year.
