Folkstock festival organiser offers free stalls to local charities in Aldenham Country Park
An acoustic music festival has awarded free stalls to local charities at its event next month.
Folkstock, which will be held in Aldenham Country Park on Saturday, September 21, has offered stalls to The Peace Hospice and HertsPrems.
The festival will showcase the music of more than 70 folk, roots and acoustic artists, many of whom live locally.
The stands will be situated on a village green at the singing, dancing and poetry festival.
The Peace Hospice’s communication’s officer, Julia Childs, said: "Throughout the day, we will be helping the young and young at heart to create musical rainsticks, so called because when you tip it up and down it truly mimics the soothing sounds of falling rain, and spread the word about the services of The Peace Hospice."
The Peace Hospice provides care for families affected by life-limiting illness.
HertsPrems, which is an organisation formed by a group of parents who met in Watford General Hospital Special Care Baby Unit, after they all experienced premature labour, will also have a stall at the festival.
Festival organiser, Helen Meissner, said: "I was delighted at the charities and local interest organisations who have come forward.
"They fit really well with our aims to be an inclusive community event. I am so excited about the selection of activities we have laid on for everyone."
