The 10th and final Yeah Baby Free Music Festival

July 7, 2018

The 10th and final Yeah Baby Free Music Festival was on the Market Place this morning and afternoon. It was also Mr Hemmings Day of Dance (report later) and England beat Sweden 2-0 in the world cup quarter finals to reach a semi final match against Croatia or Russia. One of the Yeah Baby singers sang Three Lions before the game. We are still dreaming (video above).

On Friday there had been a non school uniform day in many schools in Abingdon to raise money for Yeah Baby. They paid £1 each for the privilege and got entered in the draw on the Market Place.

Those who would like to support the event but were unable make it because of the morris dancing or football can donate £5 by texting BABY to 70456.

All the money goes to Helen & Douglas House, Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC), and the Amber Phillpott Trust – a trust set up to research a cure for leukemia with the help of Birmingham University. Amber Phillpott was the daughter of musician James who organises the event with friend Leon.

    Have these people seen nothing in the news lately about plastic polluting our planet?
