Loz Fest at Hooton Lodge Farm and Campsite: a heartfelt tribute to teenager

A FESTIVAL-friendly farm is holding the latest in a series of live music events next weekend in memory of a teenager who died from cancer.

Loz Fest, which takes place at Hooton Lodge Farm and Campsite at Kilnhurst next Saturday, is named after 18-year-old Loz Taylor, who died of bladder carcinoma three years ago.

It is being organised by Terri Taylor on what would have been the Wombwell teenager’s 21st birthday and will feature DJs, performers and the Sing for Survival Choir.

Charlotte Buck, who runs Hooton Lodge Farm, said: “We also have a licensed bar, food vendors, face painting, rides and inflatables.

“The event is free but people can choose to buy tickets and make a donation, and all money raised will go directly to Weston Park.”

The festival runs from noon to 6pm on Saturday, July 29.

It will be the latest in a series of live music events at the site this summer.

DJ Adam Milner and fellow mastermixers, including Shaun “Banger” Scott, performed last month, raising £2,500 for Weston Park.

Last weekend, another clutch of DJs took to the decks for Fam Fest, featuring hit-making artists Ultrabeat.

And next Sunday, the farm will be marking Yorkshire Day with another musical event, with Thorpe Hesley Brass Band providing a touch of traditional pomp and live music and performances from Rotherham dance and theatre schools.

The event runs from 11am to 4pm and all proceeds will go to Rotherham Hospital and Community Charity, Hooton Lodge’s chosen charity for the year.
