SOMERSET’S Unsigned is returning for its third year with 2018 seeing the event transformed into an outdoor festival.

The event, which is organised by Chard musician Jack Humphries, was launched as a concert in the Guildhall.

Jack is currently running Somerset’s Unsigned on his own, and has this year taken on the mammoth task of revamping the concert as an all-day outdoor festival.

With the change of format comes a change in location too, from the Guildhall to Chard Rugby Club.

There will be two stages - a main stage marquee measuring around 50 feet, and an acoustic one - as well as drinks for adults and fairground rides and children’s attractions.

The event is running on August 18, from noon until 11pm, with music throughout the day including headline act Shoot The Moon.

Jack said: “I have been working on this since Christmas time.

“It has taken a lot of work to get it here, but I am passionate about it “Tickets are available on SeeTickets. They have already been selling for a little while now, and I have been told the event has a capacity of 500.

“There is a chance it will sell out.”

The event is once again being held in support of NSPCC.

A regular on the gig circuit, Jack says he doesn’t see many events supporting the cause.

He added: “I am a dad myself and I hear about the work they do, and have heard stories of them not having enough funding.”
