Saturday 11th June 2022
A great way to start off the festival season with two gigs as special guests of Madness as part of the Forestry England dates postponed from 2020.
10:30 am start at Sort rehearsal studio as we’re heading to the Westonbirt Arboretum in Gloucestershire.
Good choice of film as we watch JoJo Rabbit on the bus.
Danny Boyle’s ‘Yesterday’ was next up but we only got half way through it as we arrived at our pub stop.
The Three Horseshoes, Frampton-on-Severn!
Straight in to order 12 lunches with pints to the horror of the only bar maid in the village!
(Golden Beer)A full flavoured and hoppy palate balanced by underlying fruit. This copper coloured beer is smooth, long and very refreshing.
They also prepared 12 fantastic pies…
Each filling had a choice of meat or fish with mashed potatoes and cauliflower cheese inside the pie crust!
The Village Green in Frampton is said to be the longest village green in England, and is about 22 acres in size. Cricket is played on The Green outside the Bell Inn, one of the two Pubs on The Green, the other being The Three Horseshoes at the opposite end of The Green.
We needed a long rest to digest our traditional English fayre.
Which resulted in us being very late for the sound check😟
Meanwhile back stage the weather was glorious.
…and the beer fridge full
Thought we’d explore…
Emily Capell was the first act on, she was very good.
Next up….the Farm
The crowd were brilliant!
All too soon we had to pull the plug on the evening as we had to get back home.
