A music festival is being held at the Dukes Arms in Woodford today (Saturday, August 24) to raise money for the Cransley Hospice in memory of a popular former regular.

Musician Al Tait was 58-years-old when he died at the hospice in 2008.

A music festival has been held at the Dukes Arms, where he was a regular, for the last three years – raising thousands of pounds for the Cransley Hospice.

Landlord Tony Blyth said: “The event has got bigger every year and this year we are looking at raising about £6,000.

“We’re just hoping the weather holds.”

As well as music, there are also stalls and games.

Jacksboro Highway and Tom Hall will be performing at the pub later on today, and there will also be music later tonight from The Old Grey Dogs, Kismet Hardy and The West Street Band.
