Knipfest 2024 returns to Woodnook with music, charity, and community spirit





An annual charity fundraiser with live music and family entertainment will be taking to the stage next month.

Knipfest, Grantham's annual music festival, is set to return to Woodnook on Saturday, July 6, promising a day filled with live music, family entertainment, and charitable contributions.

Organised annually by a dedicated team, this year's event aims to continue its tradition of raising funds for Cancer Research, St Barnabas Hospice, and Dove Hospice, having already amassed more than £200,000 in support.

The fundraisers were inspired to in memory of Julie Copley, who lost her battle with cancer.

Phil Noon, member of the Knipfest committee, said: “This year’s Knipfest returns to Woodnook with a varied line up as always, and promises to be a warm dry day. Last year the weather couldn’t dampen the spirits of over 1000 happy customers.”

He said the acts lined up for the evening would be “real crowd pleasers” and “promises to be a show to remember”.
