A football club is hosting a music festival which raised thousands of pounds for club funds at the inaugural event last year.
Nailsea and Tickenham Football Club is holding Frythival on May 25 with a host of music acts booked for the spectacle, which runs from noon to 11pm.
The Other Guys are returning to headline the show and create a party atmosphere for revellers.
Talented acoustic guitarist and singer Spencer Flay and The Piano Man – Mark Feven will also perform on the day, along with Kate Bush tribute act Two Moments Of Pleasure.
Al Parsons, one of the organisers behind Frythival, said: “Last year we raised some fantastic funds for the club and we hope to build on that success, however, money isn’t everything, I hope we actually get the community down to experience the day and show we put on.
“Watching people dancing to great music is what I enjoy seeing and the fact we can make some much-needed funds in the process is a bonus.”
Local trio Sweet Harmony, rock act Corvus and Motown performer Keisha Venn are also on the line-up, with more acts to be confirmed in the coming weeks.
Organisers are looking for a community choir or group to open the festival.
Al added: “With more performers and acts set to confirm in the coming weeks we are really excited to provide acts which will again cater for all tastes.
“We are looking for something like a community choir or group who might wish to open the festival.
“If anyone feels they can fill this, they can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org”
There will also be a licensed bar, a barbecue, cakes and the popular Prosecco stand.
The football club, in Fryth Way, has plenty of space for children to play, along with ice creams, face painting and a kids’ disco for some of the younger music fans to enjoy a dance.
A marquee will also be set up in case of rain.
The football club needs to raise £12,000 a year to keep it running.
Frythival raised just under £7,000 last year and organisers are hoping to beat the total at this year’s event.
Early bird tickets are priced £10 and are available at the club on match days, from S&R Burchills, in Colliers Walk, or from Al at email@example.com
