Second successful Wallington Music Festival

IMG_0013Organised by the community for the community, our second free music festival set Wallington rocking once again. The sun shone for us, whilst the threatened thunderstorm decided to give Wallington a day off.

The people we need to thank for organising the day are exceptionally modest so I will take this opportunity to make sure they are acknowledged: Ric Adams who had the original idea; Colin Wadeson who ensured we had a bandstand in the Library Gardens in the first place; Andy & Thea Brook from the Brook for booking the bands, arranging PA equipment, acting as MC, letting us meet at their venue and without whom the festival would not be the success it was; Christine Lindsay for her event management skills and expertise; Sue Spenceley Burch for her fabulous design work; Emily Nicholls & the Duke’s Head for their venue and printing flyers; Alan Fitter for organising the food stalls and publicity; Sizzle n Shake, The Woodcote Flying Club, Byrnes  Pie & Eel House, The Brook and the Wallington Arms for hosting musical acts. All of the above and AndrewIMG_0012 Langley, Robert Landeryou, Joyce Melican, Carolyn Churchyard, Sally Byrne, Charlie Ardley and my fellow ward councillors Steve & Muhammad for setting up/clearing up or helping plan the event.

I would also like to thank the stalls who provided fantastic food on the day: Byrnes Eel & Pie House, Chef RF, Chilli Chilli Cha Cha, Mosaic not forgetting The Brook mobile bar, Tropical Ice ice cream van and Anna’s – the library cafe. Also thanks to St John’s Ambulance for attending.

But the people who actually delivered the goods on the day were the fantastic musicians themselves, a good few of whom we expect to be hearing a lot more of as their careers take off:

St Elphege’s Choir, Firehorse, The Choir at The Brook, Mr Grimez, Lindsey Simpson, Anne Sumner, Grace Harris, Amelia Langley, Cameron Moon, Nicholas Highton, Paul Captain Watson, Jack Bennet, Tanya Pemberton, Dieselle May, Jenny Lockyer, Dan Davison, Taikonaut, ELTEL, Dystopia, Chloe Ray, Craig Mac, Chris Sheffield, Nina Alawo, Chris Jewell, Lola Young, Scott McFarnon, Baz Francis, Charlie Ardley, McVicker, Papa Ratsy, Front to Back, Neil Mack, Karen Fox, and Wayne Woodward.
