LIMITED tickets are remaining for a popular Barrow festival which provides the community with an array of live local talent.

Croft Rock is returning to Crofters on Holbeck Park Avenue this Saturday from 12pm until 9.30pm after it had been put on hold for two years due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Croft Rock is one of Barrow’s most popular and longest ever running music festivals.

It brings the community together for a day packed full of bands and solo artists taking to their two stages; The main Zaccarini Stage and The Doghouse stage.

"There has been months of planning as this one is quite different because we obviously had a pandemic and all that sort of stuff and it was just all of us trying to get back into it and into the swing of things again after years off.

"It’s all coming together now and the preparation is pretty much done.

“We have some great acts lined up and we can’t wait to see them live on the two stages.”

On the day attendees can see performances from Spirit, The Sun King, The McGuires, Holly-G and many more.

Mark said: “90 per cent of tickets have been sold, which is about 600 odd people, but people can still grab the last remaining tickets from Crofters until Friday night.

“The weather is looking pretty good and it isn’t going to rain which is all we need so fingers crossed it is a good day for all.”

A BAE engineer, Mark set up Croft Rock when he was bored one bank holiday in May so decided to set up a music event and raise money for charity.

All proceeds from the event go to local charities chosen by the bands performing.
