GIG: U-Turn @ The Poacher & Partridge

Yet another afternoon gig in the sunshine

U-Turn were back yet again this time playing at The Poacher & Partridge in Tudeley, near Tonbridge, Kent. It looked liked being a cloudy afternoon but that all changed when we got ther – the clouds parted and it turned out to be another hot afternoon in the sunshine in a packed pub. The Poacher & Partridge has a spacious, open plan architect-designed interior with floor to ceiling glass doors leading to the extensive garden, with fantastic views across Kentish farmland. It has a garden grill bar and the kids play area which made it ideal for families to watch us and let the kids play!

U-Turn formed up with Neil, Chris, Rob, Pete B, Pete R and Dan Evans again. It was another hot day but we were fortunate to be playing outside next to the Curious Brew Land Rover! We had a very enjoyable time and completed the usual two x three quarter hour sets.

All in all we had a really pleasant afternoon, so thanks to the staff at The Poacher & Partridge Tudeley!
