Rain Refreshed The Music
The 7th August Concert at the Promontory was nearly a washout when heavy rain flooded the pitch. So the show was officially cancelled but when it subsided, the organisers decided to carry on.
It was too late as many concert goers did not turn up and the supportive fans who dared the weather were challenged with a muddy field and intermittent climatic changes. Worse, the gig started later. But those who came had a treat...
