The Rox Crew says this weekend will see ‘the town burst back into life’.

Rox 2017 will see ‘a number of venues’ support the annual event to play host to ‘varied and contrasting line-ups to please most tastes in music’.

Below offers a taste of what attendees can expect and it includes Hotham Park once again transforming into the ‘Secret Garden’ with an outdoor stage, licensed bar, traders’ stalls, rides, workshops and catering all on hand.

Other supporting venues include The William Hardwicke, The QE2, The Claremont, The Alex, The Lamb Steyne and the Hothampton Arms, with all involved being indicated with ‘Rox Venue’ banners.

Speaking on Tuesday, the Rox Crew gave an insight to the build up to this weekend which has also seen the organisation busy launching new initiatives to follow on in August and October which they hope will ‘help to keep Bognor Regis at the forefront for live entertainment’.
