Julian O’Dell (left), known and admired by countless estate agency businesses for his training and business development skills, has announced the date of his latest fundraising event in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.
“After months of planning, deliberation and research, Cat and I can finally confirm the details of Catfest 16. The date (as many of you know) is Sunday 28th August, start time 2pm. The event will run onto midnight and probably beyond.
“It will be held in our garden as last year in a festival setting. Seven acts are confirmed and include rising star Daisy Bell, the fantastic Danni Nicholls (recently seen at Salford Village Hall, on Vintage TV and supporting Toyah in London) and the brilliant Balsamo Deighton (comprising two extraordinary singer/songwriters in Steve Balsamo, arguably the best ever Jesus in the West End’s Jesus Christ Superstar, and Rosalie Deighton, whose wistful vocals are simply beautiful).
Add into the mix Catfest 15’s returning star turns Straw Bear and Fred’s House plus a couple of other great bands – The Alice Band and Simply Wed – and you know you’re in for a musical treat from start to finish.
There will be a wonderful selection of festival food including hot choices, cheese, ice lollies and much more. There will be beers, wines, Prosecco, coffee, tea and soft drinks. There will be music. There will be merriment. There will be magical memories made.
All of the above is included in the admission price!
You’ll need a bit of cash on the day as there will be opportunities to have a go at some fundraising games and activities to win prizes.
Julian says, “Thanks to our kind sponsors, The Negotiator Magazine, Rightmove, Beasley & Partners Estate Agents, Fine & Country Estate Agents, Thomas Mae Land & New Homes Consultants, Reapit, Property Industry Eye, Knightsbridge Estate Agents, Auto Imaging, Moneypenny, Melior Clinics and Stephen Brown – their generous financial support has meant that we can keep ticket prices to a reasonable level and crucially that the maximum amount of money can be raised for Macmillan Cancer Support, which is where every single penny of profit will go. We aim to raise a five figure sum!
