Live music festival in Loughborough to raise funds for Lamp

The Rock On Wood live music festival is set to return to the White Hart Pub in Loughborough from 21-23 July 2023. It will bring together the greatest local bands from the area for a weekend of live music to support mental health in the community.

The free music festival will raise money for Leicestershire-based mental health charity, Lamp. This will be the music festival’s second year after raising £850 for Lamp last year. The event is entirely run by volunteers including organising, running and performing.

Performers at this year’s festival include Union State Hands, Hulot!, F’uke FighTers, New Age Grace and Talking With Ghosts on Friday. Pogo, Dreadnought, Heather McDowall, The Mighty Quinn, Fatzorro & Sparky, The Stop Startz, Rob Newton and John Cunliffe on Saturday. Shanty Folk, Hartland Country Band, Matt Keneson, 7th Chords and Groby Tuesdays complete the line-up on Sunday.

Tom Lakesman, Rock On Wood organiser, said:

“We are set for our Rock On Wood event to take place again this July to support Lamp. Mental health is something that affects many people within our community therefore we would like to support Lamp in providing services for those that need support.”

Vicki Standing, Fundraising and Relationships Manager for Lamp, added:

“We are overwhelmed that Rock on Wood are supporting Lamp again this year. The funds raised will help us continue supporting people within the communities of Leicester, Leicester and Rutland. We hope that those who are attending have a great weekend of live music while supporting our cause.”
