A HOST of local acts are gearing up for a festival sampling the best of Somerset culture.

Scrumpstock will take place from June 2-3 at the Oaktree Arena near Highbridge, and the Mercury has teamed up with the festival organisers to offer a chance for two readers to win pairs of tickets.

Favourites such as Combyne Arvester, The Communicators and The Fallen Apples will all perform, while a percentage of profits from the event will be given to East Huntspill-based animal rescue charity Secret World.

Doors for the event will open at 10am on June 2, and there will be a variety of food stalls, a hog roast and a number of local ciders on offer throughout the two days.

The event’s music will kick off at 2pm, and will be followed by acts including Tomholder’s Railway Sleepers, the Somerset Paddies, Mad Manners, The Fanzines, The Communicators and The Fallen Apples.

The next day acts such as Vermin, Hater UK, The Cherry Pickers, The Skimmity Hitchers, The Surfin Turnips and Combyne Arvester will perform.

The Adge Cutler Appreciation Society, named after the founder of The Wurzels, will then finish off the weekend’s music.

There will also be welly-wanging, a human agility course and a burlesque show.

Weekend tickets are priced £20.99, which includes booking, camping and parking.
