Ticket to ride to music day

REDUCED price bus travel is expected to encourage even more visitors to this year's Kesgrave Music Festival.

REDUCED price bus travel is expected to encourage even more visitors to this year's Kesgrave Music Festival.

The music spectacular, which will see an extensive line-up across two outdoor stages and the introduction of a 'live lounge', takes place at the Kesgrave Community Centre on August 4, from noon until 10.45pm.

Route 66, which stops right outside the venue, has agreed to allow anyone with a pink festival entry wristband to pay the price of a child's bus fare rather than the full adult fare.

The festival, which is in its second year, will again be staged in aid of St Elizabeth Hospice and in memory of Kate Moyes, a popular Suffolk woman who died in August 2006 following a 15-month battle with cancer.

Her family and friends organised the all-day event in aid of the charity because of the excellent care Mrs Moyes received there during the final six weeks of her life.

Event organiser Debbie McCallum said: “The idea of the reduced bus fare ties in with reducing carbon emissions.

“If more people get a bus to the venue, it means there will be less traffic and people won't have to park their car.”

Every penny of the entry fee will go directly to the hospice.
