VOLUNTEERS are being sought to help out at the eleventh annual Wokingham Festival.

On August 25 Cantley Event Field on Twyford Road will welcome in punters for a weekend of food, drink and music.

Things will get going at 6.30pm when indie-rock five piece Goliath take the stage followed by Wokingham's very own Eric Street Band.

At 9.30pm The Bronson headline the day, running through a mix of original tunes and garage band covers.

The following night The Average Chalky White band promise to deliver far more than their name would suggest, with nine brass players dropping funk laden covers of Bruno Mars, The Rolling Stones and Blur.

And on Sunday the one and only Sting will be mimicked by The Police Academy, a classic rock tribute band of high authenticity.

Stan Hetherington, organiser of the festival, said: "There is entertainment here for all the family.

"After 11 years the festival has built up quite a reputation for music.

"We have an excellent lineup of musicians and some new food sellers, some who have been with us since the festival began."

Amongst the traders are Campercino, a campervan that doubles as a smoothy stall, Hash in the Pan potato fryers and Peru Sabor, a stall providing traditional south American cuisine.

Mr Hetherington continued: "If anyone would like to come down and lend a few hours helping out marshalling the car park we would be very grateful and will give them a free days pass for each day."
