APP-FEST 2015 raises £2,100 for CLIC Sargent

The Farmers Arms has been running the tribute festival for two years with the aim to raise money for charities and bring together local communities for a magical day of music in a friendly family environment.

This year guests enjoyed music from the likes of FABBAGIRLS, an ABBA tribute band, as well as the longest running Queen tribute band who have appeared all over the world.

With activities for the children, it was a great family day out, raising £2,147 for CLIC Sargent, with more still to come in.   

The most successful year yet

Dan Pardoe, landlord at The Farmers Arms, said: “I would like to thank everyone for their continued support.

“This year was the busiest year so far and I would like to thank all the people who travelled far and wide and locally to support this year's event. This event is only possible with the support from the public.

“Next year APP-FEST will be on Saturday 30 July 2016 and we will endeavor to make it bigger and better than ever.”

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Laura Penry said: “The whole day was fantastic and everyone had a lovely time.

"It was so kind of The Farmers Arms to choose to support CLIC Sargent this year and raise such an amazing amount. I’m looking forward to next year already!”
