After a successful event in 2015 & 2016 and due to the fantastic public response, Bingham BFest, a music festival for the community of Bingham will return for its third year on Sat 8th July 2017.
BFest is organised by the volunteers of Bingham Town Sports Club http://buttfieldsportsclub.org.uk/ who are responsible for the upkeep and development of the facilities at Butt Field Bingham, which are used by Bingham Town Football Club and Bingham Town Cricket Club. The funds raised from BFest will go towards the up keep of the Butt Field Sports Club and improving the current facilities for the 400+ children and adults who use them. One of the key aims of the club is to provide two 3G pitches in the future and add facilities, which will enhance the cricket pitch.
The event itself will be held at Butt Field, Bingham, NG13 8GG and will feature a mixture of bands from the East Midlands but also mixed with local artists wherever possible. There will be 6 live acts on the main stage and the three main stage headliners will be “The James Franklyn Band” from Manchester, playing a range of swing, soul and Motown tunes. The penultimate band are The Moderators from Leicester, a 7 piece ska, mod and reggae band, then our final act will be “The Waterloo Abba Show” currently playing to sell-out crowds in Theatres around the UK.
BFest will also have a range of other things going on including, an acoustic stage with 8 live acts, children’s funfair rides, food stalls, outside and inside bars, face painting, RAF flypast, free kids activities, etc.
