Yes, it’s on again – 14th, 15th and 16th July 2017 – in the Brightling Park Walled Garden of course, and here is an update from Gardie:
Preparations for this year’s Music Festival are progressing rather well. All the headline acts are booked.
On Friday evening we have Thompson Twins’ Tom Bailey with his new all female band.
On Saturday it is “ABC” headed by the legendary Martin Fry. They have already sold out for their concert in The Albert Hall in April so we feel very privileged that they are coming to Brightling.
The weekend will finish on Sunday with 1980’s star Howard Jones.
We are still firming up on the support acts. We already have Beverley Craven, Ultimate Elton and The Rocket Band, The Illegal Eagles, Talk in Code, who were so popular last year, and The King’s Parade, who were described by Boris Johnson as London’s best buskers!
Tickets are already selling fast. However we are keeping a selection back for Brightling residents who are again being offered freebies. So if you live in the village of Brightling (this includes Oxley’s Green, Hollingrove, Twelve Oaks and Cackle Street), and would like to come please email firstname.lastname@example.org
It is probable that it will be a sell out this year so I am afraid that it is unlikely any free tickets will be available to those who do not live in the above mentioned area. I hate saying no so please don’t ask!
