Woodbridge: Music festival could return in 2012

A festival organiser is hoping to reproduce the success of this year’s event in 2012.

The four-day Fes-tea-val made its debut on the local music calendar in the grounds of Woodbridge’s riverside Tea Hut last weekend.

Now, Peter Hepworth, himself a singer/songwriter, wants to make it an annual event. Mr Hepworth, who has popped-up across much of the county with his Blue Bus Tour – a moveable concert venue driven between locations in a classic VW camper van – was delighted by the response.

Around 2,000 tickets were sold over the long Easter weekend, which was blessed with unbroken sunshine.

Mr Hepworth said: “The combination of weather, music and atmosphere made it a huge success. We’ll definitely be pushing for another one.

Among the artists to grace the Fes-tea-val stage were local bands The Kabeedies, Tiny Dragons and The Diarys.
