A STELLAR line-up of stars are coming to Solihull for the inaugural Summer Fest – a mini two-day festival being held in Tudor Grange Park.

The event, running on Saturday and Sunday, August 27 and 28, will see music, arts and culinary delights take over the park in true festival style.

And all of the profits from what promises to be a massively successful and hopefully first of many festival will be handed to the Help Harry Help Others charity (www.hhho.org.uk) set up in honour of borough youngster Harry Moseley who lost his brave battle with cancer in 2011.

Help Harry Help Others is unique in its efforts to not only help find a cure for Brain Cancer but also in helping children and their families who are affected by any cancer, and the people who support them.

Around 1,550 children are diagnosed with cancer each year in the UK, a quarter of them with brain tumours.

The charity’s ultimate mission is to find a cure, but until then they want to make a difference wherever they can.

It as three mottos for helping children suffering: Help Cope, Help Care and Help Cure.

Already confirmed for Summer Fest are UB40, The Wonder Stuff, The Hoosiers, Finley Quaye, 5ive, S Club Party and winner of BBC’s The Voice and former Liberty X star Kevin Simm.

There will also be many other original acts and a number of tribute artists and bands including Robbie Williams, Queen and Elvis Presley.

Each day will run from midday to 10pm.

Saturday is focused on mainstream commercial acts and tribute bands including headline artistes while Sunday will be a day of Indie/Rock’n’Roll/Acoustic music with local bands/Indie tribute acts and named headline artistes.
