This year's Croxfest, on The Green in Croxley, will have 'something for everyone'
Thousands are expected to attend a free music event in Croxley Green this weekend.
In its third year, Croxfest will see a host of acts performing on stage on The Green from noon until 8pm.
Croxfest 2013 organiser, Stephen Crabtree, said there has been a lot of interest in the event, which he hopes will provide a family day out which people can enjoy with one another.
He said: "This is about bringing the community together.
"We want everyone to enjoy the day and make the most of the free event, which has been put on by volunteers for the local community."
There is an extensive line-up, kicking off at noon, with performances due to be given from Honour Sunday, Maze and The Specifices.
Other bands appearing on the day include The Odd Eccentric, Reptilehause and The Spitfires, but there will be many more.
There will be a variety of music, ranging from original material to well-known sing-along covers, with the organisers promising the event will have "something for everyone".
Last year’s event attracted between 5,500 and 6,000 people and organisers are predicting as strong a turn out as then.
Mr Crabtree said: "The event has certainly grown over the years and we’re hoping this one will be just as, if not more successful."
There will be a number of food concessions available offering a variety of hot and cold food, drinks and snacks.
There will not be any alcohol being sold on the festival site, although visitors are allowed to bring their own with a picnic.
The free event is being organised by a group of volunteers, with support from the Croxley Green Parish Council Organisers request that people drink responsibly at the family event.
Although the event is free, visitors are able to make a donation towards the day’s proceedings, which will then be split between the parish council’s chairman’s charities, The Croxley Branch of The Stroke Club and The Linda Jackson Centre at Mount Vernon Hospital.
Visitors are able to get into the festival spirit by buying Croxfest t-shirts and wristbands, with all proceeds going towards the event's running costs.
Organisers would like to thank all of Croxfest’s sponsors.
