Local religious leader Matt McChlery is set to make a return appearance at next weekend’s KingStock Music Festival in St Ives.

The event, which is being organised by a team of volunteers from churches across Cambridgeshire, aims to promote up and coming local talent.

Like all good music festivals it also aims to raise awareness of humanitarian issues such as human trafficking and international aid.

Matt, a primary school teacher, is the music and worship leader at the King’s Church in Wisbech. This is the second year he has appeared at the festival.

He is due to perform from 10am on Sunday (August 31) and his new album “All things new” will also be on sale.

Song writing runs in Matt’s family as his great, great, great grandfather the Rev Sabine Baring-Gould wrote the classic hymn “Onward Christian soldiers”.

This is the fifth KingStock Music Festival and it features a line-up of over 30 acts with music styles ranging from fund to punk and rock to gspel.

“We have an incredible line up this year, mixing KingsStock regulars with some amazing new talent,” said James, Director of Heaven Sent Creativity who host the event.

“There will be a blend of great local musicians and creative talent from the region as well as some of the best up and coming artists from around the UK.

“KingsStock promises to deliver everything you could want from a festival and at a much more personal level,” added James.

“We are a grass roots festival with an organic feeling and intimate atmosphere. The whole idea is to create a place for creativity inspired by a life of faith.” A variety of other creative arts displays, demonstrations and activities will add to the weekend of non-stop music and entertainment.

Empire Nation’s Sam Dransfield said: “As a band we love being a part of new and exciting projects that have the potential to touch and change lives. KingsStock is one of these events - A truly amazing music festival.”
