James Cross was 22 when he was killed whilst cycling to Monash University where he was a student. He was a gifted musician, writer, poet, lyricist and composer and had a great passion for music.
In remembrance of James, a community driven, family friendly, music festival will be held at The Briars, Mt.Martha on Sunday March 18th featuring bands that represent the rich live music culture that exists in Melbourne and surrounding areas including the Mornington Peninsula.
The festival will focus on the local community and is supported by the Mornington Peninsula Shire Council, Bicycle Network Victoria and TRAG [Teenagers Road Accident Group].
Monies raised from this event will be put towards the promotion of road safety for all road users. This will involve the continued support of TRAG with their school education activities and Bicycle Network Victoria with their research and efforts to educate cyclists and motorists with regard to minimizing road accident risk.
