CUSTOMERS will be in for a treat when a pub puts on a charity music festival.

Local bands will perform at The Seagull, in Cornaway Lane, Portchester, this weekend as part of the venue’s first-ever ‘Gullfest’.

Proceeds from the event on Saturday will go towards Macmillan Cancer Support.

Music will start at 10am and will continue all day until midnight, with The Bu$iness headlining between 9pm and 11pm and Charity Totaliser playing out the final hour.

There will be plenty more on offer to keep people of all ages happy, including a barbecue, bouncy castle, face painting, balloon modelling and raffles and auctions.

All bands and singers have agreed to play for free as the pub seeks to raise as much money for Macmillan as possible.

We have some brilliant acts booked and there is a lot more going on all throughout the day that will keep the whole family entertained.

Alex Jeffery, manager of The Seagull

Alex Jeffery, manager of The Seagull, said: ‘Everyone at the pub is really looking forward to Gullfest.

‘We have some brilliant acts booked and there is a lot more going on all throughout the day that will keep the whole family entertained.

‘This is our first Gullfest, but we would love to make it an annual event.

‘So hopefully we will see lots of people coming to the support the event and helping to raise a lot of money for a really good cause.’

The event comes after the pub underwent a refurbishment earlier this year.

The inside was modernised and made brighter in a bid to make it more family-friendly.

A large TV and projector screen were added.

And the garden was spruced up and new planters and lighting was installed.

Live music acts perform on the last Saturday of every month.
