What’s the Sutton With Shopland Music Festival?
Well, it was described on the website safeconcerts.com last year as follows:
“Sutton With Shopland festival is small, intimate, independent and committed to the community, it’s organised and staffed by a team of amazing and totally dedicated volunteers. We say amazing because although this is a small festival there was no lack of standards at this one – in fact the standards and vibe of the place was far higher than you’ll find at many well established events.
These guys were committed to festival safety, high standards and great entertainment – and do you know what – the excelled at what they did.
We haven’t had such a relaxed and friendly time at a festival for ages – the vibe was truly great at Sutton with Shopland – and that’s down to all those amazing people that were there – those who arranged it and those who supported it.”
And here’s a sample of the music from last year:
