Glastontree At The Orange Tree Leicester

The Orange Tree is one of my favourite bars in Leicester for chilling out with friends and the food is fantastic! Their annual music festival Glastontree will be taking place on Sunday 2nd July this year and I can't wait to attend!
The Orange Tree have chosen to support LOROS Hospice as it’s a local charity that is dear to them. Each year local bands volunteer to play for free in order to help raise money for local hospice LOROS who need to raise £4.5 million a year from the local community in order to maintain their free service. They do this by putting on the festival & charging £3 on the door, all of which goes to charity! A raffle, which is supported solely by local businesses will be taking place on the day and all the money goes to LOROS. 

'When my grandma died of cancer, LOROS made her last months as comfortable as possible, they were brilliant for her.’ 
It’s on from 1pm till 1am with bands starting in the garden and then heading on inside to party the night away. They have a speciality cocktail bar in the garden this year and drinks offers will be available on all day. Don’t worry if you’d like to head in for some food as they will be serving up their regular menu right through till 7pm.

This is also the first year that children will be able to attend (between 1pm and 7pm) but please be aware the music will be loud so it’s not advised. All local bands are playing for free to help out such a worthy cause, Liam from the Hardy Band was really happy to give something back to the charity. Where as other bands are happy to play as it’s ‘the best local festival for championing local bands.. and the beer is great!
Whether you’re popping down to support local bands or a local charity, you’ll be in for a fantastic day with a great community feel. All for just £3!

Fancy carrying on the party afterwards? No worries! The Basement are the official afterparty venue and are offering free entry with a Glastontree wristband. There’ll be 20% off all drinks plus a DJ and beer pong from 11pm till 5am!
