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.
