Eleven musical acts will be drumming up funds for a Derbyshire hospice when they perform at an annual rock and booze fest.

Long-time supporters and new faces will crank up the amps at GrouseFest in Brampton, Chesterfield, on Sunday, August 30.

The festival is at The Grouse pub on Chatsworth Road and donations will go towards Ashgate Hospicecare.

Internationally renowned tribute act Jake & Elwood Blues headline the festival with a host of bands playing in the lead-up to the duo’s performance.

Performers lined up to entertain the masses will include DFacto, Your Next, Crackin’ Right Foot, Bad Language, Barnie Rubblz and The Jambusters.

Towards The Sun and Full Throttle will air rock with a heavier edge with party rockers Some Kinda Mushroom and Escape Plan providing light relief.

Landlady Jodi Scattergood said: “GrouseFest is the pinnacle of our musical year and somehow, we manage to raise the bar every time; it’s a great community event to raise funds for a cause that is close to all our hearts with some of our favourite bands who have played in the pub over the past 12 months.”

With a hog-roast to quell your hunger and an outside bar to quench your thirst, be sure to shake your tail-feather and head down to The Grouse this Bank Holiday Weekend!

Admission is free and the first band will be on stage at 12.30am.
