By Angela Cole

Midge Ure, BoyzLife, featuring Boyzone’s Keith Duffy and Westlife’s Brian McFadden, and The Blockheads are just some of the names to be performing at this weekend's Dartford Festival.

The stellar line-up take to the Main Stage throughout the weekend as Central Park becomes a mecca for festivalgoers of all ages on Saturday, July 14 and Sunday, July 15.

Away from the Main Stage, visitors will be able to see dance and drama groups on the Community Stage and browse charity and trade stalls, while local sports clubs will also be running activity taster sessions including Dartford Valley Rugby Club and Dartford Cricket Club.

There will also be a range of food and drink on offer at the food courts and licensed bars - or bring your own picnic and sit back and relax.

Leader of Dartford council, Cllr Jeremy Kite, said: “Dartford Festival is the highlight of the Central Park calendar and this year we’re welcoming some classic acts to the main stage.
