Event organiser, Max Eden spoke if his excitement ahead of the event: “We really hope that this year’s Hale Barns Carnival can go ahead, we’ve put so much into this year’s event with a line up which includes Motown legend, Martha Reeves & The Vandellas and at this moment the event is still going ahead, but in these days of lockdown we wanted to bring the party to everybody at home, so I set to work to put together Hale Barn’s very own virtual festival and bring the community together with an experience everyone can share from their living rooms.
“We’ve got a few surprise names who will be popping up during the week-long live streaming event and I’m so grateful for the support from artists, sponsors, partners and the community to get this off the ground in such a short space of time, I hope we can bring one big party experience to everyone in Lockdown and raise vital funds for vital community projects in the process.”
The live streaming event is supported by sponsors, B&M Bargains & Benchmark Security and partners, Hale & Bowdon Magazine and WA15 Studios.
