TAKING the kids to a summer concert or rock festival this year? Don’t spoil it by damaging their ears.

The Action on Hearing Loss charity is urging parents to ensure children wear ear defenders when listening to loud music at festivals or concerts. Exposure to noise above 85 decibels (busy roads/chain saw) over time can cause permanent hearing damage.

Lightweight ear defenders can protect children’s hearing and keep loud noises out without shutting out other ambient noises. The charity has the hippest ear defenders giving protection from long-term damage and tinnitus.

See a full range of ear defenders (from £11.22) on or call 01733 361199.
