A MUSIC festival near Shipston will feature a range of different music.

Broom Hill is a small friendly music festival, run by local music enthusiast Tim Porter, who is also involved with putting on music in pubs around the Shipston-on-Stour area, Shipston Proms, and the Gloucester Rhythm and Blues Festival.

This year's festival on Saturday August 18 is at Broom Hill, near Winderton, about 6 miles from Shipston, and is headlined by Mike Vernon And The Mighty Combo.

Mr Vernon produced albums on the Blue Horizon label for famous artists in British rock, pop, and blues including John Mayall's Bluesbreakers (with Eric Clapton), Fleetwood Mac, Ten Years After, Chicken Shack, Level 42 and more recently local guitarist Laurence Jones.

Also on the bill are popular local covers band Wired, who are the house band for both Wasps Rugby Club and The Cotswolds Distillery – The Buzzin’ Hornets will be playing some upbeat Texicana Blues, and Mumbo-Jumbo will deliver their mix of close harmony songs.

Oliver Darling, guitarist with Imelda May’s band, and Beth Porter, Eliza Carthy’s cellist, both originally from Brailes, will be coming back to Warwickshire to play at the event.

The music is in a marquee, and there’s plenty of parking and camping space in the same field.

Music starts at 1pm.

Early bird tickets are £17 + booking fee at www.eventbrite.co.uk key in ‘Broom Hill Festival 2018’.
