Party in the park...

Went to the free West Fest "arts and sports community festival" in Hull's West Park today. We went early. It was a bit quiet. More security than anyone else. Ground underfoot was a bit soggy after last night's rain, so I'll let the city's residents off for their tardiness. I'm sure when it firmed up everyone headed out and by the time Rolling Stones cover band Stikky Fingers took to the 'Party Stage' the park was bursting at the seams with punters. Walked past then had a quick look in the acoustic tent. Felt a bit sorry for the lad on stage (Martin Wainwright I think - although do feel free to correct me) who was putting a lot of effort in. As I say, it was a bit quiet.

It was certainly an enjoyable event for us as there were loads of people dancing to Stikkyfinger's versions of those great Rolling Stones songs!

A littl bit of extra advertising would help for next years event though... :-)

More like 'some advertising' rather than 'extra'. Not much at all in the way of pre-publicity! They need Andrew Loog Oldham on the job! Cheers for the comment Ian.
