Shire to join summer festival line-up
11:30am Saturday 5th May 2012 in News
FORMER TV talent show contestant Antony Hansen, front, has set himself an even bigger challenge.
Along with friends Amie Evans and Charlie Worthy, back, he is starting a new summer festival, which will compete with the long-established Truck Festival.
Their Shire Fest event at Grove Farms, Harwell, will compete with Truck, held just down the road at Hill Farm, Steventon, on the weekend of July 21-22. Mr Hansen, who appeared on BBC’s Any Dream Will Do in 2007 to find the next star of the musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, said: “Even though it’s the same weekend as Truck I think we will do okay – we have already sold about 1,000 early-bird tickets.”
