The festival is the brain child of Club Chemistry owner Louise Jones-Roberts and will raise money for Catching Lives which provides support services for the city's homeless.

Mrs Jones-Roberts said: “We want to create a couple of memorable days of entertainment for the whole family with a focus on providing money for the homeless through the valuable work carried out by Catching Lives."
