Glastontree, the mini music festival organised by Leicester’s Orange Tree bar, will be raising money for LOROS hospice next month.

The line-up for the High Street venue’s seventh festival of musicians and DJs has been revealed and once again includes Grace Petrie.

The Leicester singer/guitarist has appeared at the Orange Tree event every year since it started in 2005 and this year’s performance follows her high-profile set on the Glastonbury Leftfield stage.

Part of the Leicester Fringe Festival, Glastontree’s organisers are hoping to add to the £10,000 the pub has raised so far for the Leicestershire and Rutland hospice during Glastontree events in previous years.

Acts for the Sunday August 7 event also include Tom Savage, Chris Warner, Gallery 47, who recently played at Scotland’s T in the Park, Move and Cousin Avi.

Doors open at 1pm and performances start in the pub garden at 2.30pm before moving into the bar from 8pm. All-day wristbands cost £5 and are available from the Orange Tree. There will be a charity raffle and barbecue during the day.

General manager Jonny Glover said: “Last year hundreds of people enjoyed fantastic music from local bands, solo artists and DJs.

“This year is going to be even better and is a fantastic chance for our loyal customers to help LOROS hospice.

“It really is a great way to enjoy the summer and get to see what Leicester has to offer in the way of musical talent.”
