The event is being run free of charge, with the organisers simply asking for donations to be made on the door to the Teenage Cancer Trust. Football Fest is for patrons aged 18+ with tables of 4 or 6 being offered. Tickets went up for grabs last Friday at 10am and the event was fully booked within less than half an hour on all dates from the 12- 22 June, proving just how hugely popular this event is.

Opening act Megan Wyn has commented to us about her appearance:

I’m so buzzing to be playing the football fest Saturday! It’s such an honour to be playing before the Wales game supporting such an amazing band, Trampolene! And to be working with Scotts and This Feeling raising money for a phenomenal charity!”

We here at The Songbird HQ are absolutely stoked that we will be attending the event tomorrow and we can’t wait for the live music, the footie, catching up with a few friendly faces and raising money for such a worthwhile cause all at the same time. Well done This Feeling you absolute legends xx
