AN annual music festival is proving more popular than ever, say organisers.

This year's Crickfest, which takes place at Cullingworth Cricket Club on Sunday, August 27, has seen record ticket sales.

As well as a wide range of performers, attractions at the family event will include bars, food vendors, circus performers and children’s activities.

Headlining the festival is Queen tribute band Don’t Stop Queen Now, which will be supported by acts including Waiting For Wednesday, Last Orders, Coverts, Identity Crisis, Juke House Jam Band, singers Francesca and Ainsleigh and the popular Voices of Yorkshire choir.

Sean Connolly, for the organising team, says: "We chose Don’t Stop Queen Now as the headliner because we know how popular Queen is and that the range of songs offers something for everyone, of all age groups.

"Ticket sales have been excellent. Demand is high, thanks to affordable prices and the great line-up, so we are not planning to sell tickets on the day."

The tickets are priced £13 for adults, or £34 for families, and are available from the clubhouse or via Eventbrite.

The festival runs from 1.30pm until 10pm.
