IT’S just three weeks until the Bourton Festival 2012 - and this year for the first time there will be three stages.

The day long event, which takes place on Sunday May 27 in Bourton, near to Draycote Water, will host some of the biggest rock, acoustic and metal acts in the area and will be raising money for the End Polio Now charity. It’s run on behalf of Southam 2000 Rotary Club by volunteers.

Josh Neal Bate, who is organising the event, said: “My dad, who is a member of the Rotary club, tasked me with organising this festival. He suffered from polio from a very early age and it continues to affect his day-to-day life now so the cause is extremely close to our hearts and this is why we have put such effort into making it as huge as possible.”

A total of 30 bands will be playing at the event. Among those on the Vault-sponsored main stage are Go Primitive, White Men Can’t Funk, Speaking in Shadows, Making Maisie, One Eyed Jack, Morningstar, New Town Revival, Logic + Faith and Little Wing.
