THE first music festival of its kind could be launched this year if its organisers can find the backing they need to underwrite its costs.
The one-day event would be held at Berkhamsted Cricket Club on Saturday, September 15. Profits would go to charities.
Organisers say the event will have a main stage, acoustic, comedy and beer tents, children’s entertainment and catering.
They hope to sell 3,200 tickets, but say the event could cost £24,000 and have written to Berkhamsted Town Council to ask it to underwrite their costs.
Cricket club manager Greg Selfe said: “A community event such as this in Berkhamsted is long overdue. Tring and Boxmoor both host concerts to great success; there is no reason why we cannot achieve the same.”
At a meeting on Monday, councillors said they would need more information before committing to underwrting its cost.
