Saturday 2nd September saw Sutton Feast’s Picnic in The Park event delight the crowds once again. This year the sun shone and hundreds of festival goers, young and old, came out to enjoy the festivities. This year the event featured 6 bands, headlined by Split Whiskers. It was a brilliant show and there was something for everyone, up and coming artists, Sophie Frear and Charlie May, rock bands Straight Through and Sabretooth Timmy, lounge bar Jazz from Tabasco and the beautiful voice of Tia and The Bandits.
Children enjoyed free face painting, henna tattoos and a massive bouncy castle. There was an array of food on offer provided by Sutton Scouts, Sutton Feast and St Andrews Church as well as sweets from Mr Simms.
The event, as always, finished off with a spectacular firework display that had to be seen to be believed. Onlookers squealed with delight as the sky over Sutton lit up, to a fantastic musical overlay which incorporated a fitting tribute to the late Sir Bruce Forsyth!!
Sutton Feast would like to thank all of our sponsors, helpers and supporters without whom such a fantastic event would not be possible. We look forward to doing it all again in early September 2018.
