Apulstock hailed as best ever as hundreds come to party


THE sun shone on Apulstock on Saturday a festival run by volunteers to raise money for adults with learning disabilities.

Local bands including Panther, Iron Tyger and Dynamo 5 played at Church Farm, Bosham, there were dancers performing and even a Zumba session, courtesy of the company Fitjoy.

Organiser Alex Fryer said: “This year’s event was spectacular, by far our most successful yet.

“It was the best line up we’ve ever had and the hundreds of people made for a great atmosphere.

“Every year it looks like it’s going to rain but once again we had beautiful sunshine.”

The independent festival has been running every year since 2011.

A ‘fantastic’ show was put on for the festival goers, with all money raised going to the Apuldram centre, providing meaningful care to adults with learning disabilities.

There was fun for all the family, with food stalls, face painting and even an appearance from two elusive Daleks and the TARDIS from the popular British show Doctor Who.

“A massive thank you to Matt Baker for letting us host it at Church Farm and all those who helped organise it,” said Alex.

An Apulstock after party is being held on Friday, August 29, at Old Cross, featuring local band FOCS.
