We’ll be well represented at the Ey Up Mi Duck Festival in Derbyshire in a couple of weeks’ time

The music festival – which takes its name from the common local East Midlands greeting – has been inspired to support us by the story of our Young Ambassador Charlotte,  her bravery in overcoming this awful disease and her dedication to raising awareness and funds.

Charlotte will be joined at the event, which takes place from 28 – 30 April 2017 at Amber Valley Rugby Club, by Matthew and Becky Barton-Bright, who lost their lovely daughter Mia.

Ey Up Mi Duck first took place last year – to great acclaim, putting on a full two days of entertainment to a delighted crowd.

Fantastic weekend of entertainment

Taking place at the Amber Valley Rugby Club in Derbyshire from 28-30 April, the festival promises to showcase outstanding artists from a variety of genres with just two very simple aims: to provide a fantastic weekend jam-packed with entertainment and fun, and to raise much needed funds and awareness for Meningitis Now.

The festival showcases most genres including punk, skiffle, folk, pop and indie, so there’s sure to be something for everyone. There will be a variety of craft stalls, hog roasts, vegetarian dishes, and children’s entertainment, including some magical fairies to keep the little ones engaged for the weekend too.

Everyone going along is encouraged to wear orange – our charity colour - on the Saturday to help raise awareness.

A weekend ticket for Ey Up Mi Duck is just £35 per adult, £20 for under 18s and is free for under 12s. To buy your tickets or find out more, please visit Ey Up Mi Duck’s website.
