Saturday 1st 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 5 bands, headlined by the mighty Iron Fist!!
It was a brilliant show and there was something for everyone, up and coming artist, Jess Davies opened the show, crowd pleasers Five Ska got the crowds dancing, an acoustic folk and blues from Ady Pope and a lively rock set from The Numbers completed the line up.
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 anniversary of the end of World War One.
A spokesman for Sutton Feast said “This was the best one yet! So many people came out and enjoyed the relaxed party atmosphere created by a wonderful community. The fireworks provided a fitting climax to a fantastic day! We would like to thank all of our sponsors, volunteers and supporters for making the event so successful”
Sutton Feast Committee are so grateful to the whole community for helping to make the event so successful year on year and look forward to doing it all again in early September 2019.
