The Sutton With Shopland Festival is on 6th-7th July at Sutton hall, Shopland Rd, Rochford, Essex, SS4 1LQ
Details are on their website here.
The District Council website describes it as follows:
The Sutton and Shopland Festival is an annual event with a mixture of music, dance and media expressionists. Set over several days the event is a highlight in the local area. Organised by the Friends of Sutton, for more information please telephone: 01702 545730.
They have a big line-up of acts – more than seventy on the Saturday! They include the wonderfully-named Society of Imaginary Friends – a threepiece consisting of violin, accordion, laptop and operatic voice (isn’t that a fourpiece?) and imaginationandmymother who say they “like to go on sonic adventures with ambient image-provoking sound. their work can be compared through painting through sound. we imagine our sound is like a canvas for one?s mind to construct image and thought.”
They also have the unmissable Band of Holy Joy, who will be on stage I think, around 5pm on the Saturday.
And can someone tell us – were the Band of Holy Joy as good as expected?. And is some of their music on the web somewhere?
