We are proud our announce the 3rd Annual Charity music festival will be taking place on August 3rd at Kingsweston sports ground, BS11 0UT.
This year we are able to announce 6 acts on the main stage plus many talented acts playing in our new acoustic tent.
Based on feedback from the last 2 years, we are extending our day to 10.30 so we can party in to the night.
Our acts include covers band Stonefaced, 60s revivals band The Day Trippers and Daz Sims, an all round entertainer and excellent musician who has raised over £70000 since 2007 for children's charities with his Rock for Charity concerts. Other acts will be announced on the event web site soon.
Since LDubstock began in 2011, we have raised nearly £6000 for charities that include Cancer Research UK, Bristol children's hospital and The Rainbow Centre.
This year we are hoping to attract close to the 2000 people that our current license allows and hope to be able to raise ££££ which will be split evenly between the Rainbow centre and Lawrence Weston community farm. 2 wonderful organisations who do so much for our local community.
Insight electrical will be providing the sound system and this year we are also putting on a light show to enhance the festival feel, the Mild to Wild Chilli Van will cater for all tastes in English and Mexican food.
We will have a small kid zone to help entertain the kids which will include games. (Please note, we don't have loads for kids to do as not many have attended over the last 2 years).
We also have draw tickets available on the day and from our website, with cash prizes totalling £450. These tickets are £2 each and profits are also going to this years chosen charities.
L DUBSTOCK is organised and run by a group of volunteers from Kingweston sports and social club and Lawrence Weston AFC.
Ldubstock began when one of our club members was diagnosed with cancer and we decided we would like to raise money for cancer research and put on a festival that we could be proud of. The first 2 festivals have been a great success with excellent feedback and this year we are very fortunate to team up with Lets Rock Bristol to help publicise our event. With their help and profile, we are confident of selling the 2000 tickets that we are allowed and Tickets will be available soon from the event website via PayPal.
Earlybird prices are as follows: Adult £8,Kids (under 18-4s) £4,Family £20 (2 adults, 2 kids) Under 4s are FREE (tickets still required as we need to keep a tab on head count)
It would be great to see you there, the more attendees we get, the more we can give to charity.
All profits from ticket sales and sponsorship goes straight to charity.

A huge thank you to the Driverwolf F1 Sidecar Racing Team who generously invited us to spend the weekend with them at Thruxton Race Circuit.
One of their support crew, Sylvester Emms is running the Virgin London Marathon on Sunday 21st April and the whole paddock got behind his efforts to raise sponsorship and awareness for the Rainbow Centre. All of the teams sponsored Sylvester and placed stickers featuring the Rainbow Centre's logo on their bikes for Sunday's two Eastern Airways British F1 Sidecar Championship races.
In addition to this Sean Heggarty driver from Hegarty Lawson Q8 Oils team, persuaded the rest of the paddock to double their donations so that Rick Lawrence, Driverwolf's usual passenger would shave off his beard during the presentation of last season's championship trophies. Driverwolf's Roger Lockwood and Rick collected their trophy as the 2012 series Champions and Sean took the first snips at Rick's beard.
Thanks to the teams generosity we raised a fantastic £352.64.
If you would like to help add to this total please sponsor Sylvester at www.virginmoneygiving.com/SylvesterEmms
Thanks also go to Owen & Nicci Gillam for allowing us to reproduce Owen's fantastic photos from the weekend on our Facebook page and the image below.

The Grand National always causes lots of mixed reactions, but here at The Rainbow Centre we like to take the opportunity to have a fun fundraising sweepstake to add some extra interest to the race.
If you would like to organise a sweepstake with your friends, family or colleagues simply download the pdf of runners in the Grand National 2013. Cut out the names of the runners from one list (the purple horses are the reserve list as only 40 horses will take part in the actual race on Saturday 6th April). Fold up the slips of paper and place in a pot. Charge entrants a fee to take part eg £2 per entry. Let them pull a runner out of the pot - this is their entry in the sweepstake - they keep the piece of paper. Add their name to the master list, which you can pin on the walll for everyone to see. All entries must be taken before the start of the race.
In the event of not all the horses being picked allocate the remaining horses to The Rainbow Centre. The winner of the sweepstake is the person who has picked out the name of the winning horse. The winner receives 50% of the sweepstake pool & the remaining 50% is donated to The Rainbow Centre.
If you would like to take part in our office sweepstake we still have a lot of horses available - click on the link, donate £1 per horse via paypal and we will pull a name out of our pot & email it back to you.

The Living Room Bristol is encouraging its well-shod customers to donate their old shoes to raise money for The Rainbow Centre.
All types and condition of shoes will be welcomed, so whether customers have towering stilettos that have never seen the light of day, or much-loved loafers on their last legs, The Living Room will be able to put them to good use.
Shoes can be donated at The Living Room or The Rainbow Centre at any time during March 2013.
Donated shoes will be recycled to raise 40p per kilo for the Rainbow Centre which provides free support to children and their families affected by life threatening illness and bereavement.
The Living Room will also be putting on a ‘Champagne and Shoes’ fashion event in association with exclusive Park Street shoe boutique Cara (carashoes.co.uk).
With the average woman owning 34 pairs of shoes*, The Living Room will also be creating a buzz ahead of the event by cheekily asking women to post their ‘number’ on social media networks and asking them to explain what their status is all about once it has received a few comments.
Adele, General Manager at The Living Room commented: “Everyone has shoes lurking at the back of the wardrobe which haven’t been worn for some time.
The great thing is that it doesn’t even matter what condition the shoes are in, so even if you thought your old shoes weren’t suitable to be donated to charity, think again!
“We hope this initiative will be really popular with our customers. It’s a great chance to de-clutter, prevents these shoes going to landfill, and it’s all for a good cause!”
Angela, Centre Director at the Rainbow Centre added “We’re delighted that The Living Room is supporting us in this way, and all the money raised will be used to fund the vital work we do to help bereaved families in Bristol.”
