Phill Thorne gets CREATE-IVE !

Create is this weekend and if you had something else in your diary you had better change it now.

I think I’ve only ever missed one since its inception in the latter part of the 1990’s. It’s a completely different animal now from what it was then and anyone expecting it to ever return to those days is about as likely to get what they want as Woolworths is to return to the High Street. It ain’t happening.


So what can you expect from the Create Festival day in Victoria Park itself. 4 stages, loads of other activities and plenty of places to sit, relax and enjoy what is the biggest attended FREE event in the area.


Music wise this year, it’s the most varied its ever been. That said, you’ll no doubt hear the “Grumblies” as I now call them stating that there isn’t what they want to see there… apologies, truly there is so much musical variety in this world now that not every genre is going to be catered for, and those that aren’t going have probably spent their pensions getting tickets for Rambling Man instead, thankfully Southeastern have taken pity on them this year and not scheduled a mammoth set of engineering works for the same weekend like they have the last couple of years!
