Our Back Yard –
Music festival, Plantation Road, Nr Gilford

Saturday 23rd August 2014 3pm-10pm

In conjunction with Sarah Champ, Banter Quest Promotions, B2Ni and Action Cancer.

Since moving to Northern Ireland five years ago I’ve been considering hosting an outdoor music event on the property around our house but I’ve never quite been bold enough to put the plan into action. However, after presenting the idea to my wonderfully patient partner Joe and my ever-reliable Southern Regional College colleagues this past year, they provided enough inspiration and enthusiasm to host three festivals!!! With their passion and support, I knew the time was right to take the plunge.

The festival ethos is all about promotion for local musicians, as well as for local businesses, henceforth I am incredibly fortunate to be receiving support from a host of organisations, including The Gilford Inn, Simply Irresistible Foods and the Craigavon Borough Council. Additionally, B2Ni will be organising all the marketing, branding and promotional activity while the proceeds from the event will be donated to Action Cancer, who have also been very accommodating.  Banterquest Promotions will be responsible for booking all performers and have already confirmed Gypsy’s Wish, The Hardchargers, No Oil Paintings, Wookalily and Soul Truth. Phew...

Also provided will be a bar, hot food, on site toilets and parking facilities. Cars can be left over night and local taxis will be alerted, ensuring everybody can get home safely. The cost of tickets is £15 per head and a £3 parking fee. There are only 500 tickets available and on sale now at the following points: Action Cancer Shop, Lurgan, Millennium Court Arts Centre, Portadown, The Gilford Inn, Gilford during opening hours and online at www.bluecheezz.co.uk

“We are so excited about this event, it’s great to see this festival style event coming to Gilford. As a local charity saving lives in the local community we are so pleased to have the support of lots of businesses from the surrounding area”- Lucy McCusker PR & Events Officer at Action Cancer

Please come along and support your local charity and local musicians. With your help, we can make “Our Backyard” THE summer music event of 2014!
