Pub in the Park

So it's music and "chefs"... presumably the "chefs" part of it involves buying very small portions of food at around a fiver each. Which is fine - but what you're actually getting for the (rather high) ticket price is the music.


To be fair it's obviously aimed at a middle-aged, middle-class, middle-of-the-road market so the choice of music is probably about right. One assumes that the latest drill, drum n' bashment, jungle-terror, or whatever the hell people listen to now wouldn't be a great fit.

You speak the truth!!

I mean..Roland Gift? Toploader? Razorlite?(or is it light?..was this a Freudian slip)

I wouldn't go to this if they were paying me!

And cooking demos? I mean it all just sounds pretty pointless to me its a bit like some sort of foodie event with dated mainstream bland music.

I can't imagine who would pay those prices for tickets as one assumes food and drinks once in are premium prices.

Not as good as OnBlackheath in terms of music (which still veers towards the bland at times)

Sounds comically bad. A 'festi' for well off middle class folk, who like to pretend they are cool every once in a while, but fail horribly.


It's quite clever from the organisers though, they'll make a killing on, as someone said earlier, pints for ?6.50. ironically, there will still be complaints from locals about the meekest, most tame festival in the whole country, which is actually perfect for them.


I might break in just for a laugh, and admire all the Hunter wellies, even though there is not a speck of mud to be seen.

Jump over the fence, neck some acid and roll around naked in the mud in front of the cookery demo. Great festival memories.

No cookery demos though. It was porridge in the morning, soup and bread later....balancing on scaffolding poles for lavs, separated by sacking that blew around in the wind...and the farmer left containers of scrumpy out for free!

    • Aria and Dan were again amazing in their quick response to my problem (leaking toilet flush), their excellent workmanship and super politeness.  I have used them several times before and am always impressed. Last but not least,  they charge completely honestly.  Thank you!
    • Fair point. They could then blame themselves rather than older people for apparently ruining their futures.
    • I would suggest the fabric stores around soho.  But if you don’t mind shopping online, I’ve found a couple that might suit what you’re looking for online:   Orange https://www.jamiltonupholstery.co.uk/product/atcham-braid-col-04-orange-cream/?gad_source=1&gclid=CjwKCAjwoPOwBhAeEiwAJuXRh9GWPOUamGa77QNpGdANkK0r7F7y-4uCliLseY-dfUcZDCTMLDAXQRoCU7kQAvD_BwE   Green https://www.jamiltonupholstery.co.uk/product/plain-straight-gimp-braid-col-617-green/?gad_source=1&gclid=CjwKCAjwoPOwBhAeEiwAJuXRh-63bOJYHpbGmACA9iPsRXmwmX8iY5y8Ks6XxDq1lnVLdE8gp-pfjxoCXs4QAvD_BwE   i would also suggest Etsy for things like this.   Hope you find what you’re looking for 😊
    • We live nearby and often chatted with friendly Joe. Sad to see him go, he said he was retiring. Heard it’s going to be a café/coffee shop on the day he left.
