A PRE-music festival fundraiser is taking place this Sunday at The Globe in Andover.

The fundraiser is in aid of the annual Crispystock festival being held at The Lights in Andover on 12 September which will cost £1,000 to run.

Crispystock is now in its fourth year as a charitable music event raising money for Headway, a charity which cares for those who have suffered severe head trauma.

The festival was set up as a memorial for Christopher Vearnecombe who died after being hit by a vehicle while travelling in South Africa.

Crispystock has now become Andover’s only live music festival and entry to the pre-concert fundraiser is only £1.

Doors open at midday with the event starting at 2pm and features many local bands and artists from Andover, Winchester, Salisbury and Southampton.

These include Ak from SION, Great Walls, and Andrew Stigger plus resident DJs.

All entry fees and donations will be going straight towards the running costs of the actual Crispystock festival in September.
