AN AWARD-winning county festival is set to return as an in-person event this summer for the first time since before the pandemic.

Woo Fest will take place at the Drum and Monkey in Upton upon Severn between Friday, July 1 and Saturday, July 2.

The festival was created by Luke and Ria Simons in memory of their father, John Simons, who was cared for by St Richard’s Hospice.

Since its inception in 2014, Woo Fest has raised more than £85,000 for the hospice.

The artists and bands performing over the weekend are: Andy Bennett, Drifta, Echo Gecco, Chimp on a Bike, Erica Jean, Split Second, The Flames, Killerstream Weekend Anthems, Los Neibourinos, Chevy Chase Stole My Wife, Ruben Seabright Trio, Nadi Hafren, The Marrs Bar House Band, The Secret Cabaret featuring Tazmin Barnes, The Oddbox Band, Immy and The Boatman, and Emilie and Hannah.

There will be an Ibiza classics set with Boxer, a World War Two Hurricane flypast from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, a children’s play area, Jungle Jiggle, forest school, crafts, face painting and food stalls.
