It’s being held at Clayhill Farm in Westoning on Saturday, June 24, with all proceeds going to CHUMS, to help fund its children’s mental health and emotional wellbeing service.

Spokeswoman Sue Clarke said: “Last year more than 1,000 people attended and our aim this year is to attract 2,500.

“WestFest is an opportunity for people to enjoy both local and national talent in fabulous surroundings, while supporting children and young people in need from the local community.”

CHUMS supports mild to moderate mental health difficulties, trauma and bereavement. This may include help with issues such as anxiety, depression and self harm or for children who may have witnessed domestic violence or been sexually abused.
