The family and friends of Caroline Flack have announced a one-day festival in memory of the TV presenter who took her own life in February 2020.

Flackstock will take place at Englefield House in Berkshire on 25 July with live music from Natalie Imbruglia, Louise Redknapp and Fleur East.

There will also be appearances from Noel Fielding, Paddy McGuinness and Joel Dommett, with more names to be announced.

The event aims to raise awareness of mental health with all profits being spilt between charities such as Mind, Samaritans, Choose Love and the Charlie Waller Trust.

A statement from Flack’s mother Christine said: 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 with benefit from the proceeds.”

She added: “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.'
