Emma Stevens to play Grendon Festival 2012

Once again Grendon Festival is set to be the event of the summer. Taking place in the village of Grendon Underwood, Bucks, the festival will combine comedy, live music and a beer festival. You can even follow the latest football developments with a live screening of the England v Sweden match in the European Championships.

Held biannually since 2006, the festival is now in its fourth incarnation. This time it’s a full weekender. Friday is comedy night, while Saturday is all about the music featuring some of the country’s best known tribute bands as well as top local musical talent. Also this year there will be more food outlets and activities for kids of all ages including face-painting, sports cage, youth cafe, bungee running and the obligatory bouncy castles.

Grendon Festival is a non-profit making venture with proceeds going to fund projects for the benefit of communities in Grendon Underwood and the surrounding area. Our main beneficiary in 2012 will be Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity (FNHC). Based in Stoke Mandeville, their aim is to provide a first class specialist palliative care service which is accessible and free of charge to those with a life- limiting illness.
