UNIVERSITY Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire charity will be holding a summer extravaganza at the Assembly Festival Gardens to raise money for local patients and their families.

The event will take place on August 20 between 12pm and 6pm and will feature live music and entertainment.

New wave band Squeeze’s founding member Chris Difford will be one of the headline acts at the festival, with more performers to be announced on social media soon.

There will also be plenty of gourmet food trucks and funfair games for the whole family.

The money will be used to improve services at Coventry’s University Hospital and Rugby’s Hospital of St Cross.

This will include world-leading robotic surgery equipment to help patients to recover from operations quicker and tiny gel pillows to cradle neonatal babies’ heads.

Assembly Festival artistic director William Burdett-Coutts said: “It is a privilege for Assembly Festival Garden to host UHCW’s Charity Fest.

“It is set to be a fantastic day of live performances and entertainment, but most importantly a way of raising crucial funds for local hospital staff and patients, and we hope that people across the region will join us to show their support this August.”

Standard tickets for the event cost £8. Click https://assemblyfestivalgarden.com/whats-on/penguino-friends-present-uhcw-charity-fest to book tickets.
