INTERVIEW: Alannafest team visit Beyond Radio ahead of their family festival in Morecambe

Katie and Stella Duffy

A mum and daughter who run an annual family festival in Morecambe have visited the Beyond Radio studio to talk about their plans for the event.

Stella and Katie Duffy, who are part of the organising team for Alannafest, popped into the studio ahead of this Sunday's big event at the Trimpell Club.

AlannaFest is an outdoor music festival with families in mind that raises vital funds for CancerCare, and this year takes place on Bank Holiday Sunday, August 27.

The event was set up in memory of Stella's daughter and Katie's sister Alanna Duffy, who died of leukaemia in 2008, aged 26.

This year's Alannafest will be held at the Trimpell Sports and Social Club in Morecambe and will be themed on the decade of crimped hair, leg warmers, bomber jackets, netted gloves and funky headbands!

It will also celebrate 40 years of the CancerCare charity, which supports families across North Lancashire and South Cumbria.

LISTEN as Stella and Katie talk about this year's Alannafest.

This year's line-up will be hosted by Beyond Radio's Phill Hayward with the Beyond Radio team, and there will be an appearance by Beyond Bear!

You are invited to dress for the 80s, and enjoy live music from Queen tribute band 'Queen II', a Tina Turner tribute, Yazoo tribute, The Fuse, Mark McKenna, Melanie Horabin, and routines from the Happy Feet Cheerleaders and the Strawberry Dance Studios.

There will be loads of fun for the family including inflatables, trampolines, Zorb Balls, rides, carnival games, face painting, hair braiding, street food stalls, beer tent, fully licensed bar, barista and alcoholic coffees, craft stalls, novelty toy stalls, tombola, doggy watering hole, cakes and desserts, snow cones, ice cream, hair accessories and much more.

Alannafest runs from 11am until 7pm on Sunday August 27 in the beer garden at the Trimpell Club.

Tickets are available here.
