Twestival Farnham 2013 - Farnham partied with its international friends.
26 September 2013

What a fantastic evening, despite the dreary weather and the midweek slot, The Jolly Sailor in Farnham rocked to the sounds of Ed Allen & Co. & Serious Blues, earning precious funds for Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice.


The day started on a high with messages of support from Manchester, Milan, Brussels, Victoria (Canada), Houston, Boston & even Mongolia!


Last minute donations from people unable to attend arrived via email, food was prepared, banners were raised, balloons were filled and collection boxes were spread across the room. All we needed was a crowd ready to party.


We kicked off with a few words from our friends at Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice, reminding us of the amazing work they for seriously ill people across Surrey & Hampshire and the fact they need to raise £15,000 per day just to keep the doors open.


Up stepped Ed Allen & Co to get us rolling (Was Ed really only 16? His talent, and that of & Co, defied their years) and they treated us to a variety of original music and popular covers.


Still bouncing from the tunes we bopped into a game of Heads or Tails, with one lucky punter walking away with private flight for 2 to Le Touquet and back, what a prize! not bad for a £10 entry fee.


The drinks flowed, thanks to Hogs Back Brewery & Hydrosphere for their barrel sponsorship that meant every penny goes to charity, some loonies even danced and the party really got going.


Some seriously good music from Serious Blues took us to the end of the night, and upon leaving Andy and the band kindly donated some signed memorabilia from Wishbone Ash & Greg Lake that we will be auctioning off as soon as we can. If you know of any keen collectors then do let us know.


A huge thank you to Sarahjane, Ian and all the team at The Jolly Sailor for hosting us and sponsoring the music.


It was really pleasing to see the hard work of the team gain Farnham and Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice international recognition, let's hope it helps make the next one even bigger.

Twestival Farnham - Postponement
24 June 2013

Dear Followers

In light of an apparent clash of dates with local secondary school prom nights we have decided to postpone Twestival Farnham until Wednesday 25th September 2013.

I know there were a number of you who wished to attend but were unable to do so because of this clash. We are pleased to announce that the event will be able to go ahead in it's current format thanks to the help of our sponsors and hosts.

We will update the ticket link for you as soon as possible so you can purchase your tickets for September nice and early.
