The Welcome Fest, Huddersfield

The festival season is almost upon us, so no doubt the Sunday supplements will soon be running their usual 'Festival Fashion' articles featuring Kate Moss in a pair of denim hotpants and Pete Doherty looking wide-eyed and legless while sporting a waistcoat and a battered trilby. Festivals can be a costly affair once you've splashed out on a ticket, a pair of designer wellies and a flagon of scrumpy, so that's why we like the look of Welcome Fest. At only £20 a ticket (which includes food) the festival - actually being held in the organiser's back garden in Birkby - plays host to number of local blues and rock bands on Saturday 30th June. With all the proceeds from the event going to local charity, The Welcome Centre, this sounds like a no-brainer, and means you can also end the evening in your own bed rather than wrestling with a sleeping bag while lying on a slowly deflating air-bed.
