Formby Festival
Open Despite High Winds

THE FORMBY Festival opened on Saturday 3 July open despite the high winds blowing the side shows and stalls away.  This did not put of the Romans though ho came down on Saturday to the opening ceremony.   Before the show started officially Ghost 2000 took to the stage to warm the crowds up shortly followed by the Liverpool Chinese Youth Orchestra and by the Lord Leftenant of Merseyside with the Lord Mayor of Sefton.    Romans stood at attention as the official announcement was made by the Lord Leftenant.    Then it was on with the show.  First the Romans demonstrated what life wood have been like if you were a Roman in their time.   Then as Liverpool band L20 entertained the crowds West Lancs Microlight Club demonstrated their microlight to the public and children and adults alike took to the fun fair rides that were provided by Silcocks.   ABBA UK finished Saturday off with a fantastic show that got the audience dancing and jumping around.   Sadly the wind kept up over night and most of the morning stopping for a second day alot of the side shows from taking place.  Again the stage was the center of attention for most of the day as Southport's Ben Brown played to a receptive audience.    In the evening with a few glitches due again to the weather Liam Moor took center stage a the Gospel Night.   Friday 10 found the festival back on again for the second weekend.  This time with the Battle of the Bands.   Full story on this weekends shows in next weeks edition...
