Thread Name: Faversham Hop Festival
Subject: RE: Faversham Hop Festival
As a musician (you don't want to hear me sing, I assure you!)
In Fav I would always gravitate to the Bear, Yes, it would be nice for singers to have their own venue. (Similar to the Anchor/Radway axis at Sidmouth. One for songs, one for tunes)
Not sure how that could be arranged.
The Bear after all, has been a session pub for many a long year, and so has a tradition attached.
As far as I know, apart from the Folk Club on a weds night, there hasn't been that singing tradition in the town.
For those that started something going, well done, and it was nice to hear the comments from the policeman!!
The Hop fest is what it is, a pleasant way to spend a late summers weekend.
Yes, it changes slightly from year to year, but, still the people come along. Long may it continue.
I feel proud to be part of it.
Even the weather smiled on us!!!
