A MINI music festival is set to raise the roof off at a Greenock bar as local musicians take to the stage in aid of Ardgowan Hospice.

An electric atmosphere is promised at this year's 'WestFest' - an all day charity music gig at WestEnd bar and kitchen in West Blackhall Street on Sunday September 29.

The annual event will feature live music performances from talented local acts with the proceeds going to the hospice.

Lorna Watt, who owns WestEnd, said: "We're looking forward to it as it's always a good day.

"Last year, it was a fantastic day as the music was brilliant.

"The place was jumping, it was really busy."

Callum Pearson, who works at WestEnd, is also looking forward to the event and says it benefits a great cause.

He said: "Ardgowan Hospice is a charity which is close to people's hearts in the community.

"It's a really good opportunity for everybody to get together."

Elaine McNeill, from Ardgowan Hospice, hopes the day will be a sell-out success.

She also praised the acts who are giving up their time free to help the hospice.

Elaine told the Tele: "The fact that the bands have come together to perform for free is very generous of them all."

WestFest is on Sunday September 29 from 12.30pm.
