Ollie Fest returns this year for the Bank Holiday weekend and offers three days of entertainment and fun for the whole family.

Starting at 6pm on Friday, August 25th and finishing with a grand firework display at 10.45pm on Sunday, August 27th there really should be something for everyone.

The event offers a wide variety of musical entertainment as well as a fun fair, inflatables and plenty of places to eat or drink. Entry is still free, although there is a charge for parking of just £3.

Friday night features great local DJs and an incredible sound system playing electronic music including hip-hop, reggae, funk, techno and house music. In the food court will be a German sausage stand, burger bar, noodles and crepes to eat as well as a licensed bar. Entertainment will also include fire twirling and a glitter station.

This is a new venture for Ollie Fest and should put a new spin on this celebration event.

There is a great range of different musical acts over the weekend, on Saturday the live music starts at 12 noon with Fly on the Wall.

This year the event is being held to raise funds for Hope Support Services.

For full details on this year’s Ollie Fest see next week’s Ross Gazette (23rd). You can also pick up one of the programmes which are available at a number of businesses around Ross.
