Dan supports the Hoxne Music Festival

Dr Dan chats to local residents at the Hoxne Music FestivalIt was a pleasure for Dan to visit the Hoxne Music Festival last week, which returned for the third time on the village green. This year’s show played host to a range of top musical acts, including the likes of concert guitarist Richard Durrant, whilst the usual selection of activities and refreshments were on offer. The Village Voices choir and the brass ensemble with children from Hoxne Primary School also performed during the 3 day festival. Dan was delighted to see so many people of all ages at the popular event, and stopped to speak to local residents as he made his way round the village green.

This year’s festival also featured musical workshops for the elderly, young people and those suffering from dementia, which were partly funded by grants donated by the Seckford Foundation and the Adnams charity. Suffolk County Council, Mid Suffolk District Council and the Hoxne Parish Council also kindly contributed grants to keep ticket prices down. Dan would like to thank Vivienne Bradford for showing him around the festival, along with all of the performers and everyone who showed their support by attending.
