A feast of music down on the farm
The mighty Quinns plan another farm festival
IT started six years ago when farmer and agricultural contractor Dave Quinn wanted to celebrate the 25th anniversary of his wedding to his wife Mary in style. Now the farm festival has grown into Ashford’s own Glastonbury-style event. A feast of music and fun and a star line-up promises to make the annual event at New Luckhurst Farm, Smarden, on May 26 the biggest and best ever. It will include music from The Wurzels, Vanity Fare and Catch 22, who are fronted by the couple’s son Phil, comedy from Paul James and Billy Nutt. The event is compered by the Quinn’s solo sax and clarinet playing daughter Alison.
Already more than 200 of the £12.50 tickets have been snapped up and both they and camping permits should be applied for now on 01233 770427.
