GIG: U-Turn @ Rural Past Times Country Show, Pestalozzi Village

U-Turn at Rural Past Times Country Show 2019

Outdoor gig in the beautiful Sussex countryside

We played outdoors on a trailer stage at The Rural Past Times Country Show at the Pestalozzi Village in Sedlescombe, East Sussex. We played on a large lorry trailer stage with hay bale steps! The show provides an insight into the history of farming and other aspects of country pursuits, crafts and handicrafts and cottage industries.

We spent a very enjoyable lunch hour having a look round the show and watched several displays from horse drawn and vintage tractor ploughing, military vehicles, classic motorcycles, ferret racing, sheep herding and lots of old time gadgets and skills.
