FORMBY FESTIVAL CLOSES FOR ANOUTHER YEAR

SADLY the weather did its best to stop play once again. Only a few events could take place due to wind and rain on the Saturday, and on Sunday the wind continued its havoc. Luckily for the most part it was not too damp for the Romans and the Evening concerts. 

Friday 9 July, Rock V Pop, as battle commenced between bands. Ghost 2000 played so well that even the heavy rock presence decided it had to be a draw. Saturday was a fantastic day except for the weather; as the heavens opened at the start of the day and prevented a lot of activities from setting up. Some did brave the weather and were rewarded by a lovely sunny afternoon although rain clouds still circled over Liverpool and Southport. The evening started cloudy but dry, as the Chesterfield High School's Jazz Band opened up the night followed by the Sefton Youth Jazz Orchestra. The pleasure continued as the King of English Jazz himself, Humphrey Lyttelton, took over. Unfortunately, there was another short, sharp deluge, but this did not dampen the fun and the audience stayed on as Humphrey's band played on into the night. "He was fantastic and his band was just amazing." one of the SJYO band members said:- "This year, in a few weeks time it will be Humphrey Lyttelton's 60th anniversary of his first stage performance and all of us who were involved with the festival wish him all the best", said the Formby Festival Chairman, Paul Flodman. Sunday started bright but the wind had caused more damage over night and again, and many of the remaining activities found themselves scuppered. Still battle lines were drawn for the Romans who commanded a legion of local children around the Events Field. On the evening of 11th July, as the sun set and the event was coming to a close, the Travelling People, Blarneystone and Ian Clark gave us a fantastic show with their 'Folk in The Pinewoods'. Congratulations to all who were involved. This year's show was fraught with difficulty, but it still went ahead and a lot of people still managed to enjoy themselves. 
 
Well done, and see you all in two year's time, hopefully without the bad weather.
