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.
