‘Huddersfield’s biggest’ charity music festival, Marshfest, is set to hit the streets of Huddersfield this weekend and aims to take on the ‘no plastic challenge.’
The event is in its fourth successive year, beginning on the evening of Friday 19th July and finishing on Saturday 20th July. Prices have been confirmed at £5 with kids under 14 going free.
All proceeds will be donated to the Welcome Centre food bank, who help individuals and families facing financial crisis due to a variety of reasons such as job loss, debt & eviction, benefits issues, homelessness, domestic violence and substance misuse.
The food bank is listed as an independent local charity who rely on the support of local people.
Organisers have confirmed that there will be live music, rides, face painting and a selection of stalls from local community businesses. The family event also includes go-karts, roundabouts and folk dancing demonstrations.
Upcoming musicians are also encouraged to join in at the ‘have a go’ workshops.
