The family friendly one-day festival will take place in Aldenham Country Park, Elstree, on Saturday, September 21.

And Amy Pettingill has created some eye-catching visuals for the flagship event for the Folkstock Arts Foundation, a new community interest company set up by Helen Meissner.

“I am delighted to be involved with Folkstock Acoustic Festival,” said graphic designer Amy, who runs Amy Pettingill’s Art Box in Welwyn and has her works on display at the gallery in the Hatfield House Courtyard.

“Helen saw my art in exhibition in Welwyn and immediately thought my art was perfect for the festival she had been organising. Especially my musical instrument series to which the motif is based on.

“I hope that the colourful fun shapes sums up what will be a musically beautiful day for all the family. Plus an amazing venture by Folkstock Arts Foundation for local artists to show off their musical talents in a big way!”

Visitors to Hatfest’s fun day in Hatfield town centre last month would have caught a glimpse of Amy’s artwork.

The town’s new stage featured one of her banner designs, as Folkstock singers and groups performed during the afternoon, and also provided the musical interludes at the Kaleidoscope Short Film Festival at Breaks Manor Youth Centre.

Among the acts to play in White Lions Square were Hatfield father-and-son combo Karl and the Prodigal Son, child prodigy Josiah Handpan, Noel Cowley, KARA folk duo, Elstree film maker Rob Finlay, and teenage trio The Tritones, who covered Bastille hit Pompeii. Sixteen-year-old Kaitlyn Haggis and Lauren Deakin Davies, 18, also performed on the day.

The Folkstock Arts Foundation is curating one of the stages today (Sunday) at Standon Calling in Hertfordshire.

Tickets for Folkstock Acoustic Festival are available from the festival’s website at www.folkstockfestival.com/ and are £25 for adults and £1 for children under five.

There are lots of group and concession rates available as well.

Tickets are not expected to be for sale on the day.
