The Oxted Beer Festival

I haven’t gone every year, but I think I have for the last few, and it’s been ok. My big gripe with this beer festival is the cost. It’s more expensive than the Great British Beer Festival and is no way near as good! So why does it cost so much, and why has it gone up in price year after year? I don’t get it.

The beer wasn’t bad. They didn’t run out, which was a positive as they did run out last year. The music was ok. Friday night was better than Saturday. Saturday started well and got progressively worse as the evening went on.

So I’m not sure that this festival is going to be on my list if it keeps on getting more and more expensive for less and less value. It’s a shame, but if the organisers can’t make it work without putting up prices by 20-25% every year, then they’re doing something very wrong.

A day at WOMAD

I go every year and love WOMAD, but, not in the rain, and this time around it rained and rained and rained. It was a shame as the day had started really well. But by 9pm it was wet, muddy and cold. I hope it’s better next year.

Purley Festival, day 1

Whilst I was only there for a couple of hours today it’s lovely to see a local event like this and see so many people enjoying the park and some live music.
