Lisa speaks with Scouting for Girls

Earlier this week, our very own Lisa Simmons caught up with Greg Churchouse from Scouting for Girls ahead of their upcoming set at the annual Cornbury Festival taking place from 7th-9th July at Cornbury Park near Banbury. Having performed at Cornbury on two previous occasions, the trio are looking forward to performing at the finale, after fourteen years of the Cornbury Festival.

The band will be rubbing shoulders with a plethora of Cornbury favourites including headline performances from Bryan Adams, Kaiser Chiefs, The Pretenders, Jools Holland, Sophie Ellis-Bextor and Midge Ure.

Listen back to Lisa’s exclusive chat with Greg below.

Greg revealed that fellow bandmate, Roy travelled to Los Angeles on holiday and revealed that the group have been working on some new material, on both sides of the pond, with exciting news to follow later in 2017.

The band is celebrating their 10th anniversary since their debut album, and are undertaking 10 charity challenges for the Alzheimer’s Society throughout the year, with the forthcoming challenge being the London Marathon. The charity is close to band member, Roy Stride, whose mother passed away as a result of early onset dementia in 2014. You can donate to the Scouting for Girls 10 Charity Challenge and find out more via their JustGiving page.
