Tunbridge Wells' first ever Soap Box Derby billed as “one of the biggest events Tunbridge Wells has ever seen” was held in Dunorlan Park, and we were especially invited to bring some carnival spirt to the event. A couple of parades around the field drew in big crowds as they waited in between races and the finals to be held. We even squeezed in a children's workshop. Amazing!
The Crazy Jeans extravaganza drew in almost 10,000 spectators, with fifty soapbox carts going head to head in a time trial challenge help raise funds for Hospice in the Weald and ellenor.
The start of a mad dash across Sussex and Kent with two gigs in the same day in different parts of the South East. High Hurstwood fete is the quintessential English fete with a smattering of tombola, cake and plant stalls all gathered around a central arena. We led the short procession in and paraded around the field before the fete was officially declared open, before playing again in the centra arena. Lovey event and a warm reception for us from the wonderful crowd. Great cake too!
Fever Pitch is Football For Funding’s annual charity event which was set up to raise much needed funds for local charities.
Returning for the second year after it’s hugely successful 2017 debut, Fever Pitch was excited to welcome the Tottenham Hotspur Legends to this year’s event.
Bloco Fogo entertained the crowds to help build up the excitement leading up to the main event.
This year they were raising funds for The Twinkling Stars Project. The Twinkling Stars Project was set up by three sisters in memory of Blake Bassett-Rogers, to build, furnish and fund a bereavement suite at the William Harvey Hospital in Ashford. As well as providing ongoing support for the new Twinkling Stars Suite, the Maternity Department is planning a number of projects including the refurbishment of the Counselling Room to make it less clinical and more welcoming.
Back again at the lovely Horsmonden festival to open up the evenings entertainment. What a great crowd who kept cheering for more as they just could not get enough Samba, but unfortunately we had to stop to allow the time for the other bands to perform !
