THE third Inspire of Warminster music event will be held at the end of the month and promises to smash the attendance of 1,500 people who attended last year’s event.

Local bands such as Duke Box and Stamp will be returning once again to the free festival and will be joined by Angel Up Front, The Crash Gears and Polar Bear Cheese Pirates.

Pete Bartley, one of the co-founders of the event, said: “The whole idea of Inspire of Warminster is to inspire people to think about taking up music.

“If we inspire just two people to come and listen or to pick up an instrument we’ve achieved our goal.

“As well as the bands we’ve got a music workshop hosted by James Leighton & Sounds of Frome which allows people to try out different instruments and see if it’s for them.

“The kids love it but also the dads as well wanting to try out the drums and just get involved.”

The event, which is supported by Warminster Town Council and has continued to grow every year, will be taking place from 1pm-7pm in Warminster Park on July 26.

Doug Halls, also a co-founder, added: “There all good acts and there’s something for everyone with soul, rock, blues and country.

“All the bands are doing the event for free and we appreciate everything the bands do.

“They support the whole inspired philosophy of the event and that’s why their keen to do it.

"We have local bands playing so people can see that there is local talent from Warminster which hopefully can inspire others.

“The event is for all ages and I’d encourage people to come along with a picnic to the park and just enjoy the afternoon.”
