Paddle Round the Pier has announced the full main music stage line-up for this weekend’s two-day beach festival.
Local musicians and bands including Carnival Collective, Brighton & Hove Brass Band, Will and the People and Coco and the Butterfields, will perform to thousands of expected attendees on Saturday and Sunday. Around 55,000 people attended the event in 2013, enjoying a variety of music and events to suit all tastes.
Sussex’s Healthiest Workplace and international warranty specialists, Domestic & General are this year’s main music stage sponsors.
Nicky Perry, HR Manager at the Brighton contact centre, which employs 800 people in the city, said:
[box]”We’re thrilled to be a part of Paddle Round the Pier this year, taking part in one of the most active events in the city, fundraising for some really worthy charities and supporting talented local artists on the cusp of their musical careers. As a company we feel we fully endorse what the event stands for and we’ve had a fantastic response from employees who’ve signed up to volunteer over the weekend.
“Of course we’ve also entered a team in The Paddle, the question is whether we can make a giant household appliance float on water – only time will tell!”
As well as music, Paddle Round the Pier features a range of activities including water, street and urban sports, live music, kids’ entertainment and ‘have a go’ opportunities. The signature event of the festival is ‘The Paddle’, a race between the piers on humorous rafts and other floating devices, with a competition for the best/funniest. Those taking part get sponsored, helping to raise money for the named charities.
In recent years Paddle Round The Pier has raised over £200,000 for charity. This year the charities are; The RNLI, Freddysmile & Surf Life Saving GB.
Paddle Round The Pier takes place on Hove Lawns seafront on Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th July 2014.
