The third annual Briggstock Acoustic festival is tuning up to set the town alight with music this Saturday, August 30.

Promoted by Brigg Business Partnership, the event will have a programme of live music throughout the day.

And it kicks off at the four busking stations - in Bridge Street, Wrawby Street, College Yard and Chapel Court - at 10am.

The main market place stage will go live at 11am and end with the very talented and must-hear Lizzie Goddard headlining at 5pm.

Each year the event tries to build on the previous year’s success.

Banners for the main stage are being sponsored by Brigg Town Council and local businesses.

“I’m also told that the Nelthorpe Arms is continuing with live music into the evening after the official Briggstock event closes and on Sunday with a barbecue and bouncy castles,” said Chairman of Brigg Business Partnership Malcolm Bailey.

He added the purpose behind Briggstock is to attract folk into the town, to increase the footfall and ultimately increase trade in Brigg.

And for the bold at heart, Briggstock tee-shirts will be available at £3.60 from Petticoats/Climatise.

“We are extremely grateful to North Lincolnshire Council for the Community grant which when coupled with our residual Portas monies and fundraising enables us to put Briggstock on and our other programme events on throughout the year,” added Mr Bailey

“Also thanks again to Pipers Crisps, James Truepenny for organizing the music and Sophie Brumby for designing the marketing material”
