TESCO in Bordon supported a charity event by hosting a ticket-selling day for next week’s Fest In The Field.

Local band Ellamentl supported the team by handing out leaflets and talking to Tesco customers ahead of the festival at Country Market on June 11.

In addition, the then Whitehill mayor Sally Pond offered her support.

All proceeds from the event will go toward the Binsted Primary School Big Build Project to raise £113,000 for a new classroom.

Binsted Primary School headteacher Sharron Morton said: “It’s wonderful to see the children really getting behind this event, helping to hand out leaflets at ticket-selling days, and they will be running a tuck shop during the festival. We are all very excited and we’re hearing, through the forecast websites, the weather is going to be amazing.”

The festival team has launched a competition to win backstage passes to meet pop icon Lemar, who is headlining the event.

Those who bought tickets online before today, June 3, would have automatically been entered into the prize draw. Details can be viewed at the festival’s website www.festinthefield.co.uk.

According to the festival team, the Country Market has “been amazing” and is “kindly hosting” Fest in the Field on June 11.

On the day of the event, the car-boot field at Country Market, on the A325 between Farnham and Bordon and near Kingsley, is set to come alive with festival-goers listening to live music including headline act Lemar, as well as The Scheme, Junco Shakers, Key Lime Pi and All Night Workers.

There will also be a SportsZone, a KidsZone with a seven-metre climbing wall, archery, golf, tennis, a visit from Peppa Pig and much more. The event will be begin with seven school choirs singing up-beat summer songs. East Hampshire’s MP Damian Hinds will be presenting the prize for this choir competition.
