Music fans have helped to raise thousands of pounds for Cancer Research UK, Brain Tumour Research and Breakthrough Breast Cancer at a charity festival in Leamington.

The Trinity Festival, sponsored by Prog magazine, attracted some 450 people to the Assembly on May 18 to see acts including Arena, Touchstone and The Reasoning perform live.

More than £12,000 was raised at the event - with over £3,000 of that alone coming from a charity auction and raffle in which prizes included contributions from Peter Gabriel, Rush, Yes and Marillion.

Jill Lerner, who organised the festival along with Adam Hodgson, Matthew Coen, Paul Moo and Chris Lynch, said: “The atmosphere was amazing. It was so nice to see the Prog and rock community coming together for a successful fun day of music and drinking.”

She added that she and fellow organisers have already booked the Assembly for May next year to hold the event again and that they intend to make it even bigger. The festival was new this year and took place alongside a sister event in London on May 17.
