GLASTONBURY may be over but fans from the North-East and North Yorkshire can still enjoy a musical festival modelled on the West Country spectacular this weekend.

Rocks in the Quarry is former motor-racing entrepreneur Jimmy Wilson-Petch's first stab at life as an impressario.

More than a dozen live acts are lined up to perform for charity within the walls of the former quarry on the edge of the A1 at Barton on the Durham-North Yorkshire border from noon tomorrow (July 6).

Bands signed up include What The Sugar, The Shining, Elysium, Acronym, Urban Audio, Loudmouth, Snatch, Seikah, Wake, Rayne, Jam Jam, Brandon Brothers, Northern Haze, Psychodaelic Breakfast and Graham the Turtle.

The venue means the crowd is limited to 1,000 although a handful of tickets, priced at £10, are still available. Proceeds will be shared by a number of local causes.

Bookings can be made through any S G Petch garage or by telephoning (01677) 427460.
