The first ever 3 Acres Summer Gathering on Ashley Cross Green, Parkstone will take place over the August Bank Holiday weekend and the organisers have been greatly encouraged by the reaction of local businesses and residents.
The two-day celebration of live music on 28 and 29 August is headlined by singer songwriters Finley Quaye, James Walsh from Starsailor and Mark Morriss from the Bluetones.
Event director Ben Dyas says local people have welcomed them with open arms. “Everyone has been so supportive – we’ve been delighted with how the event has been received,” he says. “Ashley Cross is a lively, vibrant neighourhood and the green is a wonderful space that serves it really well.
“We know how much local residents enjoy community events and are so pleased they’ve recognised 3 Acres is about bringing quality live music to what is effectively the front garden that everyone shares.”
Joining the stellar headliners, 3 Acres has assembled the best of the area’s local bands to support and has a full programme of children’s entertainment starring Britain’s Got Talent contestant the amazing Jay Rawlings, who has performed comedy magic and juggling for Sir Cliff Richard and Dame Joan Collins among thousands of others and in 2019 set a then new world record for balancing chars on his chin.
Mad4Animals shows with animal handling and loads of photo opportunities will also be appearing, as well as the two Jamies – Jambo and Jigsaw – and a series of have-a-go circus workshops.
And there’s plenty for grown up gatherers with local food producers, a gin tent and well-stocked bar with craft beer, ciders and real ales.
