Music festival organisers have been granted £125 by Berwick Town Council towards the costs of staging their event.

The Summer Sounds Music Festival, staged within the grounds of Palace Green Pavilion, will take place on Saturday, June 21.

The council’s grant will cover the cost of the sound system and engineer.

A further £125 will be made available should the event by affected by the weather and make a loss.

However, Councillor John Robertson pointed out that it was the third year in a row the event had received a council grant.

“The aim is for them to be self sufficient after three years so this will be the last time they get a grant,” he explained.

The event, which raises funds for 5th Berwick Scouts, will as ever feature plenty of live local acts, as well as food and drink stalls.

Entry will be £3 with those aged under 16 getting in for free.

Celebrations will go on through the day and into the night, with the event running from 1pm to 11pm.
