Music festival in Newport to support St David’s Hospice Care

NEWPORT is set to host a new, family-friendly music festival in August.

Portstock 2018 – to be held at Tredegar Park – is a new fundraising event for St David’s Hospice Care, and promises two stages of live music ranging from acoustic artists to rock bands.

Eight acts will be playing on the day. The headline act and two others will be announced at a later date, but those confirmed so far are The Ed Sheeran Encounter, Big Mac’s Wholly Soul Band, Barracwda, The Apple Tree Theory and The Sisterhood.

Tickets cost £22 for adults and 314 for children, and a family ticket – two adults, two children under 16 – is also available at £55.
