Music and dancing entertain all ages
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.
