John Lewis Watford helps local music festival Croxfest

Croxfest, a music festival based on the Green, Croxley Green has been awarded £1,200 by the John Lewis Partnership’s Music Matters programme.

Croxfest is a one day free to enter community music festival, held on The Green, Croxley Green. The event is aimed at the local community as a day for family and friends to come together and enjoy the music. It provides the opportunity for new young and experienced bands to play at a live large event and the organisers seek to attract and showcase local musical talent.

The John Lewis Partnership has a long tradition of supporting music in the community, and the Music Matters programme is designed to support groups which make an “outstanding contribution” to their local community through music. The programme makes donations of between £1,000 and £5,000.

David Bass Croxfest Sponsor Co-ordinator said: “The money is a fantastic contribution that will greatly assist in staging the event where we try to provide as much as possible for the audience for free”

Jonathan Field, Managing Director at John Lewis Watford, said: “Music can make such a difference to people’s lives – it really has the power to bring people together in our local community. We hope that through Music Matters we can go some way to help people take part in a musical experience that really has an impact. Croxfest is a fantastic organisation which has a track-record of creating inspiring music locally. We were delighted to be able to support them, and can’t wait for the next festival on 3rd September 2016.”
