I am really pleased to be able to promote this year’s CavFest, which will be taking place in West Didsbury tomorrow! The festival has in the past raised as much as £9000 to support music and art in the school. From new guitars to installing a new kiln, the money raised by previous festivals has given pupils at Cavendish Primary many opportunities they would not have had otherwise.
I completely agree with the idea behind CavFest- that the opportunity for development in music and art strongly enriches a child’s education and so I think that investment in music and art from an early age is essential. Anything that helps to develop a child’s creativity and imagination is something to be encouraged and so I hope that this year’s CavFest will be just as successful as in previous years.
This year’s festival has a fantastic line-up including Badly Drawn Boy who has been called the ‘Chorlton-cum-Springsteen anti-superstar’ and recently won the Mercury Award for his music. Other bands playing at CavFest 2013 include The Rainband, hotly tipped by Liam Gallagher and Johnny Marr, who, as well as playing at CavFest this year, have played at Glastonbury. The festival continues to attract a wide range of talent from Manchester and beyond and is a must-attend for anyone in the area!
Tickets are £20 adults, £15 students, £5 children (5-15) and 1p for the under 5’s. For 10 hours of entertainment and 13 acts! I hope this year’s festival attracts as many of you as previous years and continues to provide the funds to inspire children at Cavendish Primary School in music and art.
