Thank you so much to everyone who came to Concert at the Kings 5 on Saturday. Well after 4 years of blazing sunshine, I guess we were going to get a wet one at some point…
Although it was wet, and at some times, very wet, the spirit of the crowd was not dampened and the voices of the crowd really did help lift all who were performing.
The Concert has a reputation with musicians of being a special place to play, and each year we have comments and reactions from those playing who have experienced it first hand. This year was no exception and the warmth from all the event’s supporters was felt on both stages.
As you can imagine, the clean up process is still underway and thanks to the tireless efforts of the volunteer crew we were able to get everyone away from the mud as quickly and safely as possible. But the field may take a while to turn green again!
Further reports to come, but for now it’s back to dismantling the stage and returning everything to how it was before the event.
Thank you all once again – it really couldn’t happen without all your support.

Celebrating five years of
raising funds for charities
Since the first concert in 2012, Concert at the Kings has raised over £112,500 for cancer charities and The Parish of All Cannings. On Saturday 21 May 2016 we staged our fifth event behind The Kings Arms in All Cannings.
We’re supporting three cancer charities. Macmillan Cancer Support, Bristol hospital support charity, Above and Beyond’s new fund Act to Beat Cancer and mobile chemotherapy unit charity, Hope for Tomorrow. A portion of the money raised will also go to funding projects within the Parish of All Cannings.
