We could only hire Slindon College for the night of Friday the 29th of August. All other dates were booked. We knew that holding a jolly good thrash on a Friday night would clash with many work commitments so we decided that the only sensible course of action would be to hold an “open house” event on the Saturday during the day time. Or would it prove to be foolhardy?
Selsey, in common with the rest of the country had not been enjoying anything that would in normal times pass for a credible summer. The best way to look at booking an open air event in the British Isles is at best a gamble. Would ours pay off? We had been blessed by the Isle of Man, fortunate the night before up at Slindon College (sitting outside was very enjoyable) but how would the third and final event pan out?
