"We had our inaugural event last year, and it was so successful we thought we had better do it again."

Only this time, we are hoping there will be a continued absence of Covid and so the whole event is bigger and better with buckets full of brilliant music! And as with last year we are raising money for the mayor’s charities.

Last year we concentrated on showcasing local musical talent, and whilst we do have some local performers here today, we also welcome Nine Below Zero, Miss Disco and DJ Danny Rampling to see the evening out. Furthermore, we are running two stages this year, the Sunrise and the Sunset stage in an effort to ensure the music flows all day.

So go ahead, fill your boots and have a blast! There is plenty of food and drink available, there are lots of friends old and new about, so enjoy the music on offer and dance your boogie boots off!

All best! The GDSSS Festival Organising Committee.


We are so grateful to the local businesses who make this event possible - please do support them as much as you can.
