A popular village festival that aims to raise vital church funds returns one more time this weekend.

Framfest, held in the field next to St Mary’s Church, Middlegate Lane East, opens from 1pm on Saturday with live music from 2-8pm.

The home grown music festival organised by Joanne Overton in Frampton, will also include a bar, food stalls and kids activities.

This year Joanne promises more music, more people, disabled parking, Skinners ice cream, paella and stir fry.

The set list this year includes performances by local bands Ultraviolet, The Vigilantes, Lu-cky, Scapa Flow, Lost in Orbit, Acoustic Fusion, Jazz Band and Rigstantly DJs.

Last year, more than 700 people enjoyed the day and raised £2770.

Framfest aims to raise money for Friends of Frampton Churches, whose mission is to raise enough money for the church roof to be replaced.

The lead from the roof has been stolen twice and the plan is to replace it with steel.

The group also wants to ensure that Frampton’s churches survive for future generations.

Tickets can be bought via the website and wristbands can be bought in person from Fonz’s Barber Shop, Bridge Street, Boston or Rush Hairdressing, in Kirton.

They cost £5 per person (£1.50 for under 11 year olds).
