Singers who rocked at a charity concert in All Cannings last year are returning.
The second Concert at the Kings takes place in the field behind the Kings Arms pub on May 25.
Already confirmed are 10cc, Paul Jones and Georgie Fame. And returning this year is the SAS Band, led by Queen’s keyboard player Spike Edney, with guitarist Jamie Moses and singers Patti Russo and Madeline Bell, who all performed at last year’s concert.
Jamie said: “The SAS Band and myself were proud to be a part of the very first Concert at the Kings and are looking forward to returning again this year. I’ve no doubt Concert at the Kings will be a regular fixture and a must-see in the UK rock/festival calendar.
“It was a blast from where I was standing and I’m told it was even better for those not on the stage.”
Patti Russo, who has performed with the likes of Meatloaf, said she was “over the moon” to be performing at All Cannings again.
“It’s going to be another amazing day and night of music, magic and mayhem and all for a worthy cause,” she said.
Madeline Bell said: “Last year we had a rockin’ good time at the Kings Arms.”
Also playing at the concert will be 1960s band Dozy, Beaky, Mich and Tich. Dozy is Trevor Ward-Davies, who lives in Patney.
Last year’s concert raised £30,000 for charity and the organisers want to beat that this year. Money raised will go to the Teenage Cancer Trust and Above and Beyond, a charity that supports patients at Bristol hospital. Both charities are working on a project to build a children’s ward for patients with cancer at the Bristol Royal Infirmary.
Tickets, at £51.50 adults, £25.75 under 14s, are available from the Kings Arms, All Cannings, and Sound Knowledge, Hughenden Yard, Marlborough, and online at www.concertatthekings.co.uk
