THOUSANDS of visitors are expected to flock to Kesgrave this weekend for an annual music extravaganza.

The annual show in aid of St Elizabeth Hospice kicks off at noon on Saturday and is expected to last until 10.45pm.

As well as a wide selection of bands playing on two stages, there will also be plenty of other activities to keep people amused, including a funfair, an adult inflatable slide, golf, face painters and storytellers.

The event has been organised in memory of Kate Moyes, who lived in Kesgrave, and passed away in August 2005 after a spell in the hospice.

Last year's festival raised £18,500 for the charity and organisers are hoping to smash that figure this time round.

Any adult travelling to or from Kesgrave Music Festival will only be charged the appropriate child rate for either the single or return journey on Route 66 only. To claim your child fare you must show a wristband.
