AN all day music festival is set to take place next month at the Gerard pub – all in aid of Violet-Grace's Gift.

On Saturday, August 10, the best acts from St Helens and further afield will be coming together from noon to 9pm.

The event will also feature a special surprise act, which will be announced closer to the time.

Mark Hayes from The Gerard, said: "I am thrilled to be giving Dentons Green an amazing music festival.

"The Gerard Arms does amazing things for the community and I am made up to be joining forces with Violet-Grace's Gift charity in what will be an amazing day for both the community and the charity.

"Once the headliners are announced I am sure it will be a sell out so I encourage all to purchase their tickets early as not to miss out."

There will also be an after party in the Gerard pub with acoustic singers and a jam with everyone.
