STOP PRESS: Auction of guitar signed by Roger Daltrey!

For our 2017 fundraising we once again have some items that have been signed by Roger Daltrey CBE of The Who. Starting during the festival weekend we will be auctioning a signed guitar, kindly donated by JBs Music.

We are hugely grateful again to Roger for his involvement in our fundraising efforts, and we’re looking forward to some very healthy bids!

Be seen on our Local & Live Screen!

Local & Live Music Festival is proud to present our first ever HD live screen.

Measuring 17ft by 7ft, this is a fantastic addition to the aesthetics and presentation of the event and it will be positioned directly next to our main stage which means it will be seen by the thousands of festival goers in Calverley Grounds. Local & Live is reaching out to local businesses to support this year’s festival by taking up one of our fantastic advertising opportunities on the screen.
