Family and friends of TV presenter Caroline Flack have today announced details of Flackstock – an intimate day festival to celebrate Caroline’s life with comedy, dance and musical acts this summer, whilst raising critical funds for mental health charities.

With a committee including Caroline’s mother Christine and sister Jody, her friends Natalie Pinkham, Dawn O’Porter, Anna Blue, Sarah Tyekiff, Leigh and Jill Francis the team are thrilled to announce the first acts set to appear.

Masked Singer winner Natalie Imbruglia, pop sensation Louise Redknapp and Fleur East are the first acts to be announced for the event – sponsored by McDonald’s - that will take place in the grounds of Englefield, the Elizabethan House and estate near Pangbourne in Berkshire.

With celebrity appearances on the day coming from Professor Green, Dermot O’Leary, Keith Lemon, Paddy McGuinness and Joel Dommett.

Money raised from Flackstock will be split equally between the charities Choose Love, Mind, Samaritans and Charlie Waller Trust – four worthy outlets that held a special place in Caroline’s heart.

The event will take place in the grounds of Englefield House following on from the summer concerts as part of Heritage Live on the site, presented by Giles Cooper Entertainment, who have provided their entire infrastructure and team for free to support Flackstock.

Caroline’s mother Christine says of Flackstock: “My Caroline was never more herself or happier than at a music festival with her sister and her friends.

“Flackstock is the wonderful idea of those who knew her best and the perfect way to remember her singing, dancing and most of all laughing.

“Not only is Flackstock the most positive way to honour Carrie, but charities that she loved will benefit from the proceeds.

“A big thank you to everyone involved for all their hard work – to Natalie for the mad idea, Giles Cooper Entertainment and Englefield House who saved the day, Live Nation and to all the brilliant sponsors.

“My family are so proud that so many people who knew Carrie loved her so very much.”

Ian O’Reilly, Head of Community & Events Fundraising at Mind, said: “Every donation that Mind receives through Flackstock will allow us to be there for even more people when they need us. This includes through services like the Mind Infoline, legal line and our online peer support community for adults, Side by Side. The money will also enable us to continue to campaign to improve services and provide information and support.

“We are honoured to be involved and we can’t wait for the festival to get started.”
