Eastbourne Funk and Soul.

The Craig Charles Funk and Soul Show came to the Western Lawns at Eastbourne.

He was part of The E-Festival- Eastbourne’s very own ECO and MUSIC festival held over three fabulous summer days July 29-30-31 across the towns most iconic seafront locations. And what a treat it was. Headlining artists were Toploader, the Symphonic Ibiza Orchestra and of course the Craig Charles ‘Funk & Soul Show’

It was also my first experience of bhangra, from the energetic Bhangra Smash Up; a three piece drumming band based in Birmingham and playing all over the UK. Find them on Facebook and TikTok.

Well done Eastbourne E festival for putting on a high quality, professional event.

Pub in the Park. Tunbridge Wells.

Tom Kerridge presents Pub in the Park, a laid-back celebration of the very best food, drink and music the country has to offer.

We went to the Lazy Sunday Session. It was ideal festival weather- hot and steamy all day. Music was provided by DJ Luck and M C Neat- brilliant Eighties Garage Set, London band Aswad- chilled Reggae and wrapped up with Mel C. She did a first half of her new 2020 album- a dance and electro feel about it. This was followed by a second half of her older material- Northern Star, Baby When You’re Gone and wrapped up with some proper retro Spice Girl stuff.

And a big Pub in the Park finish from Mel C.

Food was Up-Market pub grub from the pubs dotted around the festival, drink a range of craft ales, wines and spirits. All fabulous.

The best way to spend a summer Sunday in July.
