Village gears up for annual Ramfest

Ramfest returns for its 6th year on Sunday July 5 from 1pm to 8pm.

The music festival will be back at Southowram Cricket Club to raise valuable funds for two nominated charities, Ravenscliffe School’s sixth form and community centre at Spring Hall, Halifax, and Calderdale Young Carers. The festival promises a full day of great music with six bands, food and outside bar, childrens entertainment and DJ Ben Bottomley to keep the party going.

Tickets are £5 for adults and £1 for children.

The line-up includes returning artists Jake Smallbones, International Party Doctor and Psychoslinkys and long term supporters While the Cats Away. They will join newcomers Lewrey , a previous BBC Introducing band. Organisers are confident the festival has one of the best line-ups in the local festival scene.

Ravenscliffe@SpringHall needs extra funds to fit out the sixth form centre and give pupils the best possible experience. Young Carers works with children and young people who help care for a family member who has a physical, mental or addiction problems.
