“We are so excited to finally be able to celebrate Teddy Rocks this year! We have survived Brexit, and a pandemic, and we are still here ready to lead the charge in raising money for children with cancer. Teddy Rocks is more determined than ever to do good with an army of people to help get it over the line. Grab a ticket today and join the fight,” said festival director Tom Newton.

“We want to say a massive thank you to anybody who has already purchased tickets before and during these unprecedented times. It really has kept us motivated and driven and reminds us that not only are we able to help children with cancer and their families, but we also provide local musicians with a platform and give young people the opportunity to share stages with bands that they aspire to. We simply cannot do this without you,” he added.

Last month, Eagles Of Death Metal‘s Tuesday Cross woke up after being in a coma since January.
