Splendour Festival

I know this has been put up in the Nottingham Social Activities Group already, this is not intended to compete with, or take over their event, but I thought it would be a good event for this group too. Since I'm not into undermining people or treading on their toes I have spoken to Danielle (who is hosting for the other group) and she is happy for me to put this event up here.


The splendour festival is taking place at Wollaton Park. I've not been before but it looks pretty fun.

The line up is: Jake Bugg, Squeeze, KT Tunstall, Maximo Park, Dog is Dead, NinaNesbitt, Jack Savoretti, Indiana, Peter Hook & the Light

There are also comedy acts, stalls, bars and a funfair.

There should be something for everyone. Tickets are available from the site below.


If you wan't to come, book yourself a ticket and I hope to see you there.

UPDATE 18/07/13 ..................................................................................................

We will be meeting on Wollaton Road opposite the park entrance at 11.30.

The website says that picnics are allowed, so if you would like to join us for a picnic lunch, feel free to bring whatever you want to eat. This is optional so if you don't want to that's fine, there are places to get food within the park.

It is worth noting that there are several stages and not everyone will want to see the same acts. The group may split into smaller groups depending on how people feel on the day. We can discuss that when we get there.

The weather looks good so don't forget your sunscreen or your tickets. This should be ace, hope to see you there :)

    Unfortunately, I'm having to work this weekend photographing the carribean carnival in Derby. I was really looking forward to this gig. Hope you all have a lovely time.

    I think it's a great idea to have events in multiple groups, that way more people can see the events are there and potentially there will be more people to meet :)

    What's the next festival after this one? I'd be interested in going to another one. Are there any other interested people that I can pal up with? Jinny

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
