Splendour Festival @ Wollaton Park

Let's go and enjoy some music in the sunshine - subject to the British weather!

LINE-UP - Jake Bugg, Squeeze, KT Tunstall, Maximo Park, Dog is Dead, Nina Nesbitt, Jack Savoretti, Indiana, Peter Hook & the Light plus lots of comedy!

http://www.splendourfestival.com

The line up looks good with some local names and I hear the comedy is good too. Plus there's stalls, a funfair, kids arena and bars! What more do you need for a fun Saturday in the summer, I hope you'll all join me. :-)

I've booked my ticket and suggest you all do the same and then we'll arrange when and where to meet nearer the time.

      As long as you enjoyed it Haley:). To be fair at that time it was starting to get packed so we were easy to miss.

    That was Brilliant, and being with such a great group as well made it even better. So pleased that I didn't just end up going on my own. Was shattered at the end & didn'expect to make it to end of last song. Squeeze were brilliant imho (of course), but also enjoyed Ferocious Dog & Jake Savoretti, K T Tunstall & Jake Bugg.
    Sorry we missed you Julie before Jake Bugg came on. Hope you got home all right. Many thanks for putting a group together Danielle:)

    Would love to have come to this! Went a few years ago when Blondie was on the bill! Awesome! Unfortunately I'll be working :(

    May 16, 2013

    • Emma D.

      I'm working until 4pm but start at 8am so will probably be a bit tired to be honest Jus. And plus, I haven't brought a ticket and doubt I'd be able to get one on the day. Have a good time anyway!

      July 19, 2013

    • Jus

      Aw that's a shame Emma but understandable. See you at another meetup:)

      July 20, 2013

    • Maggie

      Hi. Natalie, I have to bring my boys now, could I hook up with you?

      July 19, 2013

    • Natalie

      Hi Maggie, you and the boys are very welcome to join us however I should just point out, in case you wanted to be in a group with other children, that there is only one 15 yr old child in our group, the age range of the others is from 27 - 54. We aim to get there (and join the queue) at 12.30 - 1.00pm. My no is[masked]

    In case anyone missed the email - We're meeting on Wollaton Road opposite the main entrance at 11:30.

    I'm gonna bring along some food for a little picnic once we're inside and then buy dinner on-site in the evening - you can bring in food and drink, but not alcohol.

    Don't forget to read the FAQs on the website if you haven't already, there's lots of info there http://www.splendourfestival.com/faqs/
