GIG: U-Turn @ The Halfway House Beer Festival Brenchley

U-Turn live from the beer garden at the Halfway House

Playing outdoors in the beer garden

We played outdoors on the rustic stage in the beer garden at The Halfway House in Brenchley, Kent. It was a scorching day with us due to come on at 12 noon. The beer garden opened at 12 noon with the beer garden already filling up – particularly the shaded areas! The beer festival featured 70 beers and 30 ciders so something for everyone!

Our aim was to play a relaxed set suitable for having a pint in the sunshine. Hopefully we achieved that and we had some good feedback.
