A popular Banbury pub is getting ready to provide another fun-filled Bank Holiday day of live music, all in aid of a good cause and completely free.

Jem Morey and Anthony Murray run the Wine Vaults on Parsons Street and have organised this year’s Vaultstock event on Sunday to raise funds for Katharine House Hospice.

The day has been a popular fundraiser during the August Bank Holiday for the past five years and the pair also run the town’s oldest pub, The Reindeer Inn on Parsons Street.

Mr Morey said: “When we came to the town we wanted to do something for people in the town as at the time not a lot happened on the Bank Holiday weekend. This is our fifth year and it has really grown in popularity every time we organise it.

“We were absolutely packed last year, which was incredible, and raised between £300-£400 for what is a very worthy cause.”

The event has raised more than £1,000 since its inception.

Headlining this year are Banbury-based four-piece band Vagablond, with eight other bands and acoustic acts performing throughout the day. The music starts at 2pm and runs throughout the day until 11pm. Mr Morey added: “We just want as many people to come down and have a really good weekend enjoying a day full of live music. We just wanted to do something that was interesting within the town centre so we hope as many people can come down to Banbury to enjoy themselves.”
