QRRA One Aim Rally

Bloco Fogo attended the Queens Regimental Riders Association One Aim Rally, raising money for the Queen's Regiment Benevolence Fund. A 3 day military themed rally near Hearn Bay with 15 live bands.

We had a great reception here and were made to feel extremely welcome, despite being quite a contrast to many of the other bands. Too many of us to fit on the stage meant we performed in front and managed to get a few of the audience to join in with the dance moves, great fun.

Herne Bay Festival

Herne Bay Festival - Kraken Big burn A same Sky Event

On the beach near the clocktower.
The Kraken has awoken…. and this mythical creature is heading for Herne Bay…
Below the thunders of the upper deep;
Far, far beneath in the abysmal sea,
His ancient, dreamless, uninvaded sleep
The Kraken sleepeth: faintest sunlights flee
About his shadowy sides: above him swell
Huge sponges of millennial growth and height;
And far away into the sickly light,
From many a wondrous grot and secret cell
Unnumbered and enormous polypi
Winnow with giant arms the slumbering green.
There hath he lain for ages and will lie
Battening upon huge sea-worms in his sleep,
Until the latter fire shall heat the deep;
Then once by man and angels to be seen,
In roaring he shall rise and on the surface die.
Alfred Tennyson

This is a one off fire installation, made specially for this not-to be missed event.
