Rockfest | POSTPONED

Cuz, Lyn and the Rockfest team have made to sad decision to postpone this year’s Rockfest due to the coronavirus pandemic and the protection of the bands, families, volunteers and venue staff which could be affected.

Big-hearted truck driver Cuz, who lives in Mutley with his wife Lyn and son Tyler, is the powerhouse behind Rockfest, the annual live music weekender he founded in 2002 and works tirelessly to organise each year. Since 2009, the two-day extravaganza and tribute to Dot has been raising money for St Luke’s due to Cuz’s desire to give back to the charity for the outstanding care they provided for his beloved mum in her final weeks and the support they gave her husband Don, to whom she was married nearly 50 years, and Cuz himself.

The popular event at Crash Manor, Union Street, sees hundreds of loyal Rockfest supporters, plus new attendees, rock out to the sounds of 10 bands who generously play for free in aid of St Luke’s.

Thanks to Cuz’s unwavering determination and the enthusiastic support of the venue’s owners, the bands, audience and local businesses who donate raffle prizes, last year’s Rockfest raised £10,538, taking Cuz well over the £100,000 target he had set to help St Luke’s raise vital funds to care for 100 families at home.
