Normally Gedd-Stock is held every two years but it proved so popular in 2011 that organisers decided to hold it again this year, and annually from now on. This year Gedd-Stock has also been extended to two days for the first time.

The festival runs from 3pm to 10pm today (Saturday, July 14) and from midday to 7pm tomorrow (Sunday, July 15).

Organiser Rick Loak said: “It’s going really well, it’s busy and the weather has help up at the moment.

“Everyone is having a great time and the bands are absolutely brilliant.

“Tomorrow (Sunday) we are going to be packed because it’s a more children and family orientated day with bouncy castles and face painting.”

Since it began in 2001 Gedd-Stock has raised more than £20,000 for local charities.

Mr Loak said: “This year we are hoping to double last year’s total, which was £3,400.”

This year’s Gedd-Stock will raise cash for The Eve Appeal, Cransley Hospice and the Alzheimer’s Society.
