Crick Scarecrow & Music Festival has been awarded £1,000 by Northamptonshire Community Foundation through the Yelvertoft Community Benefit Wind Farm Fund.
The Crick Scarecrow and Music Festival is an annual 3 day event that takes place in July and is for the social and economic wellbeing of the village. The festival brings together the local communities of Crick and other surrounding villages.
The group will use their grant to purchase a 24 channel music festival mixer which is a key and vital piece of equipment for the music festival. The mixer will enable the group to practice and train more sound engineers which will guarantee a successful music festival every year.
Ian Gidley, Crick Music Festival organiser said “We are really excited about the Crick Scarecrow and Music Festival this year. The majority of bands are confirmed and it really is an exceptional line up of superb bands and artists. We are so pleased with the support for this free entry event that will raise thousands of pounds for local and national charities and voluntary organisations. Thanks to the grant received from Northamptonshire Community Foundation administering the Yelvertoft Community Benefit Wind Farm Fund, we have been able to purchase a professional music mixer for the event which is usually very expensive and a headache to hire. Our sound engineer has the added bonus that he can practice on it from now until 14th July which means the event will have a fantastic professional sound quality!”
