Thursday, August 03, 2006


Well, it might feel like we have had the longest summer in the history of long summers, but there’s still plenty of staggering about drunk in sun-scorched fields wearing novelty shirts you would not dare wear down the local drinking rough cider and losing your lighters to be done.

Here is a round up of a few of the events still to come.

This really is scratching the surface. The best resource for festival information is Festival Eye magazine. Unfortunately Andy does not put the dates on line, to encourage people to buy the mag. This years mag is the best ever and worth getting your mits on... even if we are half way through the season!

And if that aint enough for you.... the footy starts again on saturday
