If it doesn't happen this year we'll have to make 21 one hell of a knees up eh

Jeanette Brookes let’s be hopeful for this one xxx

You too x

All the best to you folks! Just thinking outside the box a bit. Could we pre-pay for the beer tokens and save cash handling on site.

Really hope it is on but if not we will survive and just have to make next year the best ever. 🎉😎

Love the spotify lists thank you xx

Thank you for keeping us informed. Fingers crossed you can go ahead. I’m happy for you to roll over our ticket money until next year but please can we have the same line up. I was so looking forward to My Baby.
