Kentish Express Ashford & District - - FRONT PAGE -

AN event started to cel­e­brate Smar­den farmer Dave Quinn’s wed­ding an­niver­sary seven years ago has now de­vel­oped. A huge crowd at­tended the event staged by Quinn Farm Ser­vices at New Luck­hurst Farm on Satur­day evening, with many camp­ing overnight.

This year he pro­duced two head­line acts fa­mous from the 1960s with both The Wurzels and Van­ity Fare at­tract­ing more than 500 rev­ellers.

The for­mer had strong sup­port from many Kent­based Young Farm­ers Club mem­bers while the lat­ter basked in the praise of the more ma­ture au­di­ence, prov­ing that the show caters for all ages.

Also on the bill were Paul James, Ra­dio Kent host of the Satur­day Carry On and Sun­day Re­quest shows, and his part­ner Bill Nutt.

Lead­ing the danc­ing were lo­cal group Oh La Las, who per­formed the can can.

Alison Quinn played both clar­inet and sax­o­phone in ad­di­tion to act­ing as com­pere, and Catch 22 per­formed some qual­ity num­bers to open and close the event. Mu­si­cian Struan Robert­son pro­vided a disco to keep the ded­i­cated campers en­ter­tained late into the night when the live mu­sic came to a close.
