Methven Action Committee (MAC) has been busy with preparations for the inaugural Summer Sounds Methven, charity music concert on 20th February.
The event is a large undertaking by MAC, made up of local business owners and residents, but it is for a well deserving cause – the Methven Care Trust, raising funds to build the new Methven House aged care facility.
The Hororata Trotting Club is racing at the Methven Racecourse on Sunday 21st February and as a fundraiser is offering the public the opportunity to ride in a double sulky around the course with our own local racing icon Ricky May.
Richard Sheppard, MAC Chairperson, said, “It is going to be a fantastic weekend for people to be in Methven, we have some great acts, local and nationally renowned at the concert and a fantastic day of racing the following day.”
The concert is being held at the Methven Domain and it is hoped to attract up to 3000 visitors. Gates open at 1:30pm, with the concert commencing at 3:00pm. The concert will finish at approximately 10:00pm. Food, a bar, activities, and children’s entertainment will be available on site along with free parking. Entry donations will be accepted at the gate on the day, $30 for a Family of (2 adults and 2 children) and $15 Single.
MAC is very grateful to all the performers who have confirmed so far: Eddie Low (pictured top right), Amelia James (pictured bottom right), Robbie Giddens and the Brewers, Holly Kimber, Waynebo, Full House and Huttchick.
The sponsors of the event have been very generous with donations of funds, time and equipment to enable this concert to happen.
