It all started in 2007 as a birthday celebration in a field behind a pub and a good time was had with a group of friends performing which included the 3 Daft Monkeys. It was decided to do the party again the following year but for charity. The friends in attendance still remain a key part of the team including Main Stage Manager, Magical Sounds curator, Main Stage Compere, Operations Manager, Build Team, Children’s Area managers and of course the Birthday boy remains the organiser and Main Stage programmer.
