Firsdown Music Fayre 2011

This weekend saw the 6th annual Firsdown Music Fayre, a free festival of local bands over 2 days for the local crowd to enjoy. It was a cracking weekend, the best yet, and we were very fortunate the weather stayed dry. It all started at 6pm on Saturday evening with the bands playing until 11 finished off with a great firework display. The crowd was fuelled by a well stocked bar serving Hop Back’s finest ales and Stowford Press cider and there was also a BBQ to keep those who hadn’t brought food well fed. Sunday afternoon saw a further five hours of bands, lots of picnicing, drinking etc before the short walk home. And the kids loved it too, running around the field, acres of space for them to play in.

The festival was opened by local hero and ‘Time Team’ legend Phil Harding.

Bands included Dirty Rouge, Fenton Stack, The Wednesdays, Lasa, The Zucchinis, David Waddington, Vulcan, The Hop Back Blues Band, Silent Jim, Sarus, with the Robbie Wallace Band closing the show.
