YOUNG adults, carers, nurses and local bands all came together recently for a Hampshire hospice’s first ever music festival.

On July 6, the Jacksplace garden was transformed with tipis, stalls and colourful decorations for Jestival.

The one-day event, hosted exclusively for the young adults staying at Jacksplace, featured live music from a variety of local artists, along with candy floss machines, a photo booth, fun fair games, a massage therapy tent, and a glitter, hair and face paint stall of which staff and young adults enjoyed alike.

Play team leader Huw Bromage, said: “We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone involved for making our first ever Jacksplace festival a success! A special thank you goes out to the volunteers who gave up their time on the day to man the stalls, and the local bands that also volunteered their time. The food was a particular highlight, cooked in our brand-new BBQ hut in the Jacksplace garden by our wonderfully talented kitchen team, as was my glitter beard.”
