Henfest – get in quick

At the time of writing there are only a few tickets left for this excellent local festival

There's a little gem of a festival right on our doorstep where you can see some of the best acts around in beautiful surroundings.

Henfest takes place over in Wimborne and has lined up a great array of local talent for live music fans.

The best thing is that the do takes place this Friday and Saturday so you get your Sunday free for Fathers' day duties!

We're looking forward to this one as there are a series of really good acts but alongside these we're hoping to discover some great artists that we've never seen before.

Friday sees the main stage headlined by local ska legends Rat Race who are always remarkably good value. Supporting them a series of great bands including the highly thought of Quins Quinney.

Saturday gives live music lovers a choice of stage, on the acoustic stage we have an embarrassment of riches with Beth Harris, Lily of Barbery and one not to miss is the amazing Will McNicol

The main stage on Saturday is all go and it's a difficult job finding the stand out sets.

Early doors I'm looking forward to seeing Catherine Burke and the effervescent kazoo master Citizen Perez. If you've had a large lunch, and that's a distinct possiblity with the superb array of food and beer on sale, then you can work it all off with a bit of an old dance with the amazing friends of G&B Black Water County.

Aspiring guitar players could do worse than take in the set from Tom Clements who recently released an awesome album. He's well worth a watch live too.

Later on the quality continues with Soulhole appearing in their new line up, the always brilliant Kadia and a first support slot from Sons.

Top amongst those appearing for me has to be Empire Affair. Sadly the guys are going through some line up changes at the moment and this looks like it will be the final performance with the original members. Punters can expect a superb set from the guys.

Be quick though because this brilliant local festival has been priced way too low and tickets are running out quickly. They had very few left at the  time of writing.
