Mrs Swain (Head of Music at Fyling Hall School and Festival Organiser) explains

“We are super excited for the return of the Rose Garden Festival. It is always a highlight of the year bringing the local community together with students and staff from the school, to enjoy great music in a beautiful location. This year it is for a fantastic, but perhaps lesser known charity, Ovarian Cancer Action, a very worthy cause for which we hope to raise significant funds. It is always a fun- filled event and we hope as many of you as possible will come and join the party.”
