Thank the tiny baby Jesus for long weekends. The four day Easter weekend always sneaks up on me, and always make me extra grateful to live in a country that is so legally Christian that it throws out days off for the whole place for Good Friday and Easter Monday, no worshipping required. How nice is that? Especially nice when it means that after all the sleeping late and chocolate bunnies and drinks with friends that there is still time to actually deep clean the house and watch tons of Netflix and old movies AND take a long walk along the river. This just proves I need at least a quarterly four day weekend (three day weekends, while nice, are still just not quite enough to fit everything in).
Yesterday we took advantage of the sunniest day-warm with a cool wind-and took a long walk along the river, followed by a refreshing drink at the pub afterwards with a very muddy Bruce in tow. It seemed like all of Shoreham had the same idea, which is no surprise. But with this first long weekend comes the start of festival season! A new music festival is happening in June at the airport, which is mind-blowingly ridiculous because this is 1) Shoreham, and 2) the line-up includes Sam Smith and Wu Tang Clan. Wu. Tang. Clan. Seriously. It’s sold out, and I am pumped.
But first! With the May bank holiday (the first one anyway) comes the Foodies Festival, and once again, I will be there, sipping on bubbles and eating a variety of tasty treats. And also just like last year, I have some tickets to give away! The Festival will take place on Saturday 2 May-Monday 4 May, back on Hove Lawns. This year they are introducing a new champagne and wine tent…so you know where you can find me. I’m also excited to check out the new “tasting theatre”…Japanese Soul, raw food, and vegan food are the ones that sound the most intriguing to my tiny little taste buds. And and and, there will be a wild herb + foraging master class which I hope I can sneak into. Looking like another great lineup this year-more of which you can see here http://www.foodiesfestival.com/brighton-hove-lawns/
So, how to get in on the fun? Leave a comment below with your email address, and like or share this post on Facebook or Twitter. The more the merrier! I’ll announce the winner of a pair of tickets the week before the festival, on April 20th. See you there!
