Style Acre Ambassador to meet his musical heroes at Dorchester Festival!

Style Acre has been chosen as charity partner for this year’s Dorchester Festival. The festival, held at the prestigious Dorchester Abbey, has raised £150,000 since 2015 for Dorchester Abbey and local charities.

The festival will provide lots of opportunities for people Style Acre supports to get involved – groups from the charity’s day hubs are busy making decorations for the opening night bash, and getting creative with scarecrows hoping to win the competition to have theirs displayed as part of the scarecrow trail!

The adults Style Acre supports are looking forward to getting involved in events throughout the week – they will be judging at the dog show, making pedal-powered smoothies at the Food Fair, selling raffle tickets at concerts by the likes of Tallis Scholars, BBC Elstree Band, and Out of the Blue and generally enjoying themselves!

Style Acre Ambassador Daniel is especially excited about meeting some of his musical heroes – we booked Sam Kelly & The Lost Boys to join Jackie Oates for the festival’s first folk night, and Daniel is a huge fan – he will get to meet them over dinner before the gig and he can’t wait!
