The 2014 main stage line up
The one-day Rock against Cancer concert in May 2014 will take place at the same venue behind The Kings Arms in All Cannings and we’re aiming to raise more money than 2013′s event. See the time the bands are on.

With some original members of Dire Straits
Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel
Sure to make us smile
Featuring Paul Young and Jamie Moses
Sprinkling a little bit of fairy dust
The second stage line up
The perfect summer festival band to move everybody’s feet
The Greasy Slicks
The soundtrack for a bourbon-soaked bar brawl!
Sounds, feelings and tones with an alternative jazzy blues twist
This year’s charities
This year we are supporting Macmillan Cancer Support and Above + Beyond charities. And once again, a portion of the money raised will also go to funding projects within the Parish of All Cannings.
If you were lucky enough to go to one, or really fortunate and got to go to both of the previous concerts, you’ll know what an exceptional event Concert at the Kings is. We have been privileged to have had some of the finest musicians join us over the past two years. Many of whom have truly shaped the course of music over the years.
Not many events can boast this many headline acts from the previous two years: Brian May, Roger Taylor, Jeff Beck, Mike and the Mechanics, Midge Ure, 10CC, The SAS Band with special guests, The Sweet, Patti Russo, Kerry Ellis, Benny Gallagher, Chris Thompson, The Fabbagirls, Kiki Dee, Madeline Bell, Tom Robinson, The Queen Extravaganza’s Marc Martel, Dr Feelgood, The Blues Band, Georgie Fame, The Strawbs and Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Tich. Hosted by Bob Harris, Mike Read and Dan Chisholm – and all playing on hot, sunny days in a small village in Wiltshire.
Tickets are available now, so put Saturday 31 May 2014 in your diaries – you won’t want to miss this fantastic event!
