Power for Portstock – new sponsor for Newport music festival

Western Power Distribution has become the latest business to show its support for a Newport-based charity by signing as the newest sponsor of the Portstock 2018 music festival.

The first Portstock, a ‘family friendly’ festival, will be held in Tredegar Park on Saturday, August 18. It will raise funds for Newport-based St David’s Hospice Care.

The festival will feature a number of acts including Blackwood headliners Into the Ark (runners-up in ITV’s ‘The Voice UK’), Big Mac’s Wholly Soul Band, The Ed Sheeran Encounter, Barracwda, The Apple Tree Theory, The Sisterhood, Russell Jones Jnr and The Dhol Foundation.

WPD’s Karen Welch said: “We are a strong supporter of St David’s Hospice Care and the wonderful work it does in the community. Newport is a city with a strong musical history, so it’s very fitting the city will have its own music festival, we are delighted to lend our support to Portstock and wish it every success.

“The announced acts are all great and the event also takes advantage of Newport’s wonderful Tredegar Park. It has the makings of a good day and we are excited to be involved.”

Gemma Sandhu, of St David’s Hospice Care, said: “We were delighted to hear that WPD had signed as one of the main sponsors of Portstock 2018. Their support will help to make this event a real success.”
