Wisbech Rock Festival 2016
It began at 6.30 AM when a small group of volunteers rolled up, blinking in the early morning sun, to begin to long job of setting up the biggest and most ambitious Rock Festival that Wisbech Town Council has ever put on.
By 11AM people had begun to arrive. Drifting in with their friends and families they began to lay out their picnic blankets and sun chairs and little tents for the day ahead.
All in all I would estimate that we had 4000+ people visit during the day and at least 2000 there from about 2PM onwards. Probably more, since it was hard to tell with them being spread over the whole park instead of just concentrated in the central area.
The event was pulled off without a hitch. The music was great. Everybody seemed to leave in great spirits.
Every year we pull out the stops and make Wisbech Rock Festival bigger and better. This year we did it again. Gawd knows how we’ll top this one next year, but I suspect Samantha Hoy, David Oliver and the other masterminds are already thinking about it. Well, maybe not quite already. It was a long long day and everybody was shattered by the end. But tomorrow, I imagine. ;)
