This years event was even better than the last two years, if that is possible. The weather was really on our side this year. Every body had such a fantastic time. People came from far and wide to make this event a success. Hats off to Derek and Sue Smiley for opening up their beatiful home. They put a lot of hard work into making this event a success. Derek doesn't know as yet how much money was raised ... I bet it was quite a lot. Brilliant.

Had feeling this was going to be a 'Good One'... it did not disappoint. From start to finish it was great. This anual event will be on the Soul Calender of events to go to. Every penny that is raised at this event goes to charity. Derek & Sue Smiley are wonderful hosts and hats off to them for allowing their beautiful home to be invaded by an army of soul minded people.

2012 EVENT

All Proceeds to go to Breast Cancer Charity

From the word go this event was great. The Old Rectory was such a wonderful venue, people were amazed that Derek & Sue opened up their superb house and grounds for this event. The music was 'spot on' and the people who attended were a really friendly crowd. Most people brought their own food and drink - BBQ's were supplied along with a Bar if needed. Plenty of campers pitched up in the garden..a great atmosphere all round. The rainy weather did not in any way dampen the spirit. All the DJ's gave freely of their time and along with Festival Time who donated all the equipment and wonderful lighting, plus so many people to mention giving help in many ways, made this an event to remember.
