The sold-out Brodstock music festival 2017 has surpassed its fundraising total of £50,000 for Overgate Hospice.

The fourth Brodstock event will see 3,000 music fans attend Old Brodleians Rugby Union Club in Hipperholme.

Gates open on Saturday, June 17 at 11.30am with local bands playing all the way through the day beyond 9pm, as well as food and drink tents, activity stalls, bouncy castles, a toddler zone and a climbing wall.

The Hipperholme Gin Festival will also have its very own bar at the event.

More than 100 volunteers from the rugby club are involved in putting the event on, alongside volunteers from the Brighouse Friends of Overgate, creating a family friendly atmosphere, with community the main focus.

All proceeds from the day go to Overgate Hospice and the Brods. Income from the bar and some of the food stalls goes straight to the rugby club.

Brodstock events have previously funded the new clubhouse toilets and redecorating.
