The Breathe Festival takes place on Sunday.

A special festival will take place in Barnstaple on Sunday to celebrate what would be the 18th birthday of Katie Gammon.

The Breathe Festival takes place in the Pannier Market from 11am.

Taylor Swift, Katy Perry and Olly Murs tribute acts will perform at the festival, as well as local acts, with funds going to Children’s Hospice, Everything Ellie and Over and Above.

As well as live music, the festival will have food, drink and a children’s area with a bouncy castle, fun shows and face painting.

Organisers hope to raise £20,000 for the three charities, but also raise awareness of cystic fibrosis and encourage people to sign up for organ donation.

Katie underwent a double lung transplant in August 2013, died in August last year – just days after her 17th birthday.

She fought a lengthy battle with cystic fibrosis but had spent the last couple of months of her life in hospital suffering with lung rejection.

Tickets for the festival are £15 for adults and £8 for children, with children’s tickets giving free access to all activities at the festival.
