On Saturday I babysat for the friends who babysat for us on Friday, so they could also go to the Leas Lift Beer Festival, so I have more opinions and news to share. It is generally regarded as a roaring success, I think so, the friends think so, they know the organisers and they say so, and finally (but less reliably) I spoke to the organisers after I'd tried all the ciders on the Friday and I'm sure they were positive then too. Even some knobhead setting off the fire extinguisher towards the end of Friday didn't spoil it.
Things finished early on the Saturday, so sorry if you missed it, but they'd sold out of everything.
There will be another Leas Lift Beer Festival, in the summer, and on a larger scale.
Hello and thanks, and good luck for next time to everyone involved.
This is my website The 'Gerald that I built in a fury of excitement when I first came to Folkestone in approximately '04. I'd been a frequent visitor for a while before that so I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get now. The site was a lot more dynamic with a gig calendar and voting for favourite venues and things, and I know it was a useful reference for those who were thinking of moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only to Hythe) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as The town is becoming the exciting place we always thought it was just about to. My name is not Gerald by the way, this comes from a pretend newspaper in an episode of The Day Today or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are GRATE aren't they? Do contact me if you have anything to contribute, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on Twitter.
