Crick to host its annual music festival and scarecrow weekend

Rugby Editorial 9th Jul, 2014 Updated: 27th Oct, 2016   0

THE fourth Crick Music Festival takes place this weekend.

A line up of 15 local bands and artists will perform for free from noon until 9pm on Saturday when the headliners will be White Men Can’t Funk and until 7pm on Sunday with rockers Ol’ Rosie last on stage.

It takes place off Bury Dyke in the village that will also host its popular Scarecrow Festival over the same two days.

Both aim to raise a significant amount of money for local and national charitable causes.

Music festival organiser Ian Gidley said: “I didn’t think we could beat last year’s success, but the support from bands and solo artists who want to be involved as well as over 300 fans confirmed as going via Facebook is overwhelming.

“The event’s reputation is starting to spread and we are also very grateful to Butchers Pet Care for their continued sponsorship without which the event could not go ahead.”

A map of the scarecrow locations will be available from the post office and there will also be other entertainment and stalls around the village including The Sealed Knot Military Encampment on Fallowfields, the Crick Challenge including tug of war on the school playing fields, a children’s fun area on The Marsh and an exhibition of the Grand Union Canal and local history at the Old School.
