The line-up has been revealed for a popular one-day family festival.

SummerFest will once again take place on the grounds of Redlands Leisure and Community Park in Weymouth on Saturday, June 8 from 10am-11pm.

The Round Table-organised event - which is free to enter with an optional donation - will be jam-packed full of live music, entertainment, stalls, food and drink concessions - and rounded off with a huge firework display.

SummerFest 2024 will boast a bumper line-up of local musical talent including the Speedway Snails, Modern Disciples, The Undecided, Hustle and Chill, as well as DJ sets throughout the day.

Chairman of Weymouth and Portland Round Table, Jason Frampton said: “SummerFest 2024 is shaping up to be Weymouth’s biggest event of the summer.

“Our one-day festival is designed for all ages, so please do bring your family along for a packed day of live music, fairground rides, performances from local groups, delicious food and drink, and so much more.”

This year organisers are raising money for the Weymouth RNLI which they branded ‘a vital community institution that has been saving lives at sea for over a century.’

Weymouth RNLI Fundraising Team Chairman, Teresa Drage said: “I am very happy that the Weymouth and Portland Round Table have chosen Weymouth Lifeboat Station as their chosen charity for SummerFest 2024.

“Weymouth is one of the busiest lifeboat stations in the country, covering 1330 square miles of sea.

“The RNLI relies entirely on donations to save lives at sea and to have the Round Table’s support is a real boost.”

Funds will also be donated to the Dorset Acquired Brain Injury Rehab Service, a hugely important service that helped rehabilitate Round Table member Grant Tewkesbury after a serious head injury in 2022.

Generous donations from visitors to last year’s event made it possible for the Weymouth and Portland Round Table to present a cheque to the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance of £13,000.

The team have also recently purchased a much-needed defibrillator unit at Weymouth’s harbourside, next to Bennett’s Fish and Chips, funded by proceeds from the same event.
