11/09/2019: Farkfest 2019 this weekend!

After the debacle of last week's visit by Old Bishops Fancy Scouts, we are looking forward to a much smoother weekend for Farkfest. There is an investigation into the fires that marred the Scout weekend, which is expected to make its deliberations public soon, so this should at least take our minds off it all.

Dimitri is beside himself as all the spots are now filled in the Family Field for Saturday afternoon, likewise the Folk Hall, Rock Face and the Rap House, which is always well attended. Dimitri is thrilled as Henry Buckton has agreed to headline the Family Field and we have never had a musical climax to this part, and often felt one was needed. Mostly, the acts are local talent paying homage to their heroes in the chosen genre, but we are importing a few big names too.

Dorothy, Dowager Duchess of Upper Self has agreed to open the event and spend the afternoon in the Family Field with her entourage. The line up is now fixed and is as follows:

Family Field
Introduced by Dimitri Varkov and I

  • Daniel Paul, Conjurer
  • Falcon Ellie from Farkham in Flight, Falconry Display
  • The Mummers and the Dadders, Morality Plays for Children
  • Drums on Seats
  • Henry Buckton, Bucolic Songs from Old Somerset

Folk Hall
Introduced by Roger Lamb of Radio Farkham's Folk Call
  • Katie Tickle playing the Northumbrian Pipes
  • Kaye Trusty
  • Glasseye Stan
  • Farkport Confection
  • Jennifer Talworts

The Rock Face
Introduced by 'Rock Hard' Dick Cheeseman of Radio Farkham's Rock My Socks
  • OCDC, AC/DC tribute band who clean the stage after their set
  • Skinny Leonard
  • Bob's Eager and the Saliva Bullshit Band
  • Seven Colours

The Rap House
Introduced by MC See X1 of Farkham Radio's Heap of Rap
  • EmCeeSquared

It should be a great night and day of entertainment. There are still tickets left, available from Paige Turner's Bookshop, Notweeds Garden Centre, Biggs Hits Record Shop, Farkham University Students Union (FU-SU) and here at the hall. Don't be shy now, get on the phone or call in and get yours.
