Chance for your school choir to perform at Music on the Hill

McFly, Peter Andre, Jools Holland and Stooshe and more are gearing up to perform at Music on the Hill in aid of Demelza Hospice Care for Children, the Children’s Development Trust and Teens Unite Fighting Cancer.

But alongside the stars the organisers of Music on the Hill are looking for a final act from the local community to perform on stage at the festival in Kings Hill this summer.

We are running a competition to give a school band or choir the chance to play at Music on the Hill on Sunday July 21st for the Family Summer Sunday.

The winning group will perform on the same day (and stage) as Stooshe, Gareth Gates, Joe McElderry, Charlie Brown and many more.

Hollie's Fundraiser is Picture Perfect

A ten year old girl who loves drawing is taking commissions for pictures to raise money for children who aren’t as lucky as her.

Hollie Simmonds from Newington wants to raise £250 for Demelza from her artwork.

Hollie said: “I really love drawing and my family told me that I was very good at it so I started doing pictures for them and collecting donations in return, in a jar at home.  I have made over £30 and had lots of requests so thought I would aim higher.

“If you tell me what you would like me to draw, I will do it as soon as I can and give it or send it to you.  If you like it you can then donate as little or as much as you like on my page and help me raise money for children who aren't as lucky as me.”

The Newington Primary School pupil has done pictures of animals, cartoon characters and a pirate but she prefers fictional characters rather than copying real things: “It took me five attempts to do the labradoodle” she said.

Bring along your unwanted books, bric a brac and clothing with a drop zone available an hour before gates open.

Music On The Hill takes place this weekend (July 19th to 21st)
with a stunning weekend of outdoor music and entertainment at Kings Hill.

Four separate and very different events are to be staged over the course of the weekend offering a wide variety of entertainment provided by internationally renowned artists.  

The weekend kicks off in party style with a Friday night appearance by the inimitable Jools Holland, on stage with his sensational 18-piece Rhythm & Blues Orchestra and with Roland Gift, voice of the Fine Young Cannibals, as special guest, plus renowned vocalist Ruby Turner. (Fri 19th July)

Saturday 20th July’s line-up this year will feature two separately ticketed events – media superstar Peter Andre takes the headline slot for Saturday evening with a dazzling new summer show.  Due to popular demand the organisers are also delighted to welcome back McFly to perform a special afternoon show, following their sellout appearance back at the first Music on the Hill in 2011. 

Sunday 21st July shifts up yet another gear with a fun-filled Family Festival day, packed with star-quality music and entertainment – with music from 2013 Brit Award nominees Stooshe, former X-Factor winner Joe McElderry plus Gareth Gates, Cheryl Jay and Mike of Bucks Fizz, Ben Mills, to the classic hits by Queen and the Rolling Stones, paid tribute to by Killer Queen and the Counterfeit Stones with the day hosted by Capital FM breakfast show and ITV presenter Dave Berry.
