Vicar’s Picnic 2018

A welcome return to Yalding for more of the vicar’s shenanigans – all under the relentless July sun.

Great performances from headliners Starsailor and Fun Lovin’ Criminals, as well as Cast, Sex Pissed Dolls and One Eyed Jacks, while the likes of Norman Jay, Nightmares on Wax and PBR Streetgang rocked the dance tent.

Stephen K Amos provided one of the highlights for me – a blistering 60 minute turn in an over-capacity and over-heated comedy tent. We salute you, sir.

Lounge On The Farm 2014

So it was that time of year again – a new one-day format for the last Lounge (on Merton Farm, at least). Still loads to do and somehow cram it all into 18 hours and take some photos.

My personal highlights were jiving with missuseb to Si Cranstoun, going bonkers to DJ Yoda and the Trans Siberian Marching Band, the usual frollicks at the Farmhouse with Coco and the Butterfields, John Kye was electrifying in the day’s lowest-key performance and The Pajama Men were very, very funny. There was a bit of rock’n’roll glamour with helicopter departures, I had a chance to get up close (but not-so-personal) with Huey of the Fun Lovin’ Criminals and then there was familiar mayhem that a camera attracts in the Farmhouse after dark (those pictures will NOT be appearing here, or anywhere else!) and my God, did you get to try that Indian food?!?

Hope you all had a great time, thanks to Jamie and the team, what does 2015 have in store? 10 year LOTF anniversary party over three days in a new location. Can’t wait.
